Iceland Imagined: Nature, Culture, and Storytelling in the North Atlantic
- A Weyerhaeuser Environmental Book
- By: Karen Oslund, William Cronon (foreword)
- Narrated by: Cynthia Wallace
- Length: 7 hrs and 30 mins
Iceland, Greenland, Northern Norway, and the Faroe Islands lie on the edges of Western Europe, in an area long portrayed by travelers as remote and exotic - its nature harsh, its people reclusive. Since the middle of the 18th century, however, this marginalized region has gradually become part of modern Europe, a transformation that is narrated in Karen Oslund's Iceland Imagined. This cultural and environmental history sweeps across the dramatic North Atlantic landscape, exploring its unusual geography, saga narratives, language, culture, and politics, and analyzing its emergence as a distinctive and symbolic part of Europe.
