The Simon & Schuster reference line continues to expand with another book in the If You Were There series, begun in Fall 1996, with Biblical Times and Medieval Times. This title, Viking Times, takes readers back to ancient Scandinavia in a quest to discover what life was like with exciting Norse heroes and heroines. Spreads -- complete with vibrant, full-color art and intriguing text -- cover aspects of Viking life, from spending epic, frozen winters in a longhouse to building the ships that carried warriors to conquests in distant lands. And the back cover folds out into an exciting game board. Readers play the roles of Vikings in their travels across Europe and beyond to raid, trade, or settle in the new lands they discover. A fantastic way to introduce children to an intriguing ancient culture, If You Were There in Viking Times is a strong addition to the ever-growing group of S&S reference books.
