A special 30th anniversary edition of the classic tale of high-seas adventureJoin Erik and the crew of The Golden Dragon on their journey as they go in search of adventure in "the land where the sun goes at night." Along the way their courage, skill, strength, stamina, and wit will be tested to the extremes. In the tradition of the great Norse sagas, this book was commended for a Greenaway Medal upon its publication in 1983, and was the basis of a 1989 fantasy film directed by Terry Jones and starring Tim Robbins.


"Dazzlingly illustrated by Foreman. . . . An enjoyable volume."  —Kirkus Reviews
