This 81,781-word digital version of The North Star: A Tale of Norway in the Tenth Century, by M. E. Henry-Ruffin, is the faithful digital re-publication of a rollicking adventure novel originally published in April of 1904, and should appeal to anyone who loves historical fiction.

The "North Star" of this book's title refers to Olaf Tryggevesson, first king of all Norway (995-1000), and Ms. Ruffin clearly did her homework on the subject of King Olaf.  The result is a painless way to learn some Scandinavian history and Church history, especially regarding this particular era, an historical period which might otherwise be neglected by your self-educational efforts.
