Summary
" ... Are the small freeholders of the Icelandic countryside--operators of the one-man, one-family farm got by inheritance or purchase and held with grim tenacity against all connivances of nature and man by folk whose ruling passion is to be their own masters on their own acres." [Dust jacket]

Summary
In an epic set in Iceland in the early twentieth century, Gudbjartur Jonsson buys his own croft after eighteen years of service to the local bailiff, and brings his wife and his small flock of sheep there to build a new, independent life for himself
