"This charming saga of Icelandic cross-country riding has a little of everything -- wild tales of mad gallops, centuries of the island's history and personal stories of redemption and revitalization. Made me want to take my turn there!" ~ Wendy Williams, author of The Horse: The Epic History of Our Noble Companion
