The Björkan Sagas

We rated this book:


Juha led a party of adventurers from the valleys of the Björkan in search of the story trader. To the Björkan people, truths and stories of lands outside their valleys are very valuable. Upon finding the story trader, the adventurers were confronted by gun-toting aliens and taken hostage along with an ethereal healer aboard her spaceship. After fooling the aliens into leaving the spaceship and then freeing themselves and the healer, the adventurers returned home. Now, back in the lands of Björkan, Juha and the people of the valleys must face a warlord and fire-breathing dragons.

The Björkan Sagas is an exciting new novel by Harold Johnson. He uses the prologue and epilogue to tell the fascinating tale of how he came up with the story. Written in the style of an epic poem, Johnson calls upon his Cree and Swedish heritage to deliver this innovative saga, blending ancestral wisdom with elements of science fiction. Whether traveling aboard a living spaceship of forests or battling dragons with Valkyries, the action never stops. Johnson weaves in messages of conservation and the need to protect the environment. This is a truly legendary saga for anyone bold enough to embark on the journey.
