This second volume of The Inuk Quartet continues the exciting adventures of Leiv, Apuluk and Narua established in The Shipwreck. The story begins with our trio settled peacefully on Thor Gunnarrsson's farmstead in Greenland. When Viking raiders arrive at the farmstead, their quiet world is disturbed forever. Leiv, Apuluk and Narua must rely on their wits, their courage and their friendship to protect their new home. AUTHOR: Jorn Riel was born in 1931 in Odense, Denmark.
