Fresh in its originality When Norse Winds Blow is an engrossing journey into the era of the much-maligned Vikings. Vikings were known throughout the world. They travelled far, reaching many countries. In previous times, Vikings were portrayed as mindless killers, but contrary to belief, apart from their enemies, to whom they showed no mercy, they are known to have integrated with various cultures in many places. Viking culture was the only one of that time to ensure their women were respected and given an equal place in Viking society.
