This new English translation of the Faroe-Islander Saga (Faereyinga saga)--a great medieval Icelandic saga--tells the story of the first settlers on these wind-swept islands at the edge of the Scandinavian world. Written by an anonymous 13th-century Icelander, the saga centers on the enduring animosity between Sigmundur Brestirsson and Thrandur of Gota, rival chieftains whose bitter disagreements on the introduction of Christianity to the Faroe Islands set the stage for much violence and a feud which then unfolds over generations of their descendants. Making the saga accessible to a wider English readership, the translation is accompanied by a brief introduction, explanatory notes, genealogical and chronological tables, detailed maps and an excerpt from Jomsvikings' Saga which informs missing passages from the Faroe-Islander Saga manuscripts.

Heðin Brú, der wichtigste Autor der Färöer-Inseln, erzählt von dem alten Fischer Ketil, der Schulden von einer Walfleischauktion hat und alles Mögliche unternimmt, um sie zu begleichen. Er muss feststellen, dass der Fortschritt auch auf den abgelegenen Färöern Einzug hält und dass er nicht mehr recht Schritt halten kann. Trotzdem kämpft er einen tapferen Kampf um seine Ehre, die er sich nicht nehmen lassen will. Brú beschreibt kraftvoll und zugleich mit großem Einfühlvermögen Ketils persönlichen Spagat zwischen Tradition und Moderne.
