PRAISE FOR THE FAR TRAVELER
"[A] snappily written biography . . . In surprising flashes, Gudrid comes into focus. Brown pursues Gudrid out of admiration for a woman bold and wise. I eagerly pursued this book, which is as much about Brown's adventures as Gudrid's, for the very same reasons."—The New York Times Book Reivew
"Brown's enthusiasm is infectious as she re-teaches us our history."—The Boston Globe
