Tyrthbrand battles a tremendous storm off the coast of Vineland to bring his ship safely to shore. He refuses to call on Tyr, his god, to save him, despite how the tempest rages against them with cunning. Despite how the rain stings and the land remains hidden.
Not until Tyrthbrand loses another sailor to the winds does he beg Tyr for help.
How can Tyrthbrand become his own man if he must always rely on the gods? Especially in this strange new world, with these even stranger people?
"The Jaguar and the Wolf"—a fascinating and well-researched historic fantasy—explores the question: What if the Vikings sailed down the coast of the New World and ran into the Mayans?
