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]
