In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Saga Land is the kind of book in which the authors take you on a journey--not the fleeting kind in which you stand by idly watching the world rush by, but the kind that lovingly leads you by the hand and takes you on a real adventure. As I read this book, I felt as though I was not just listening to Fidler and Gíslason's recount of their journey through Iceland, but rather, I felt as though I was there with them. So while technically I may not have ever seen Iceland, in a sense I have--not just the country itself but the innermost depths of the heritage and culture.
Saga Land is so full of intricacies, complexities and violence--it is a deeply beautiful and memorable read as well as an absolutely wonderful tribute to Iceland. I absolutely adored this book and would recommend it wholeheartedly.
