View at publisher


This novella for children draws on historical research into the Norwegian Viking invasion of, trade with, and settlement of the west coast of Scotland. The practice-led project uses the historical research to construct a narrative which demonstrates the superiority of reason and generosity over physical force, and also the potential for an individual to resist conformity. The project mobilises narrative theory from psychotherapy and bibliotherapy (Hunt & Sampson, 1998; Eakin, 1985, 2008). It is premised on the principle that through active reading we can remake the story of our life and our sense of self and identity.
