From the Mouth of the WhaleBook - 2011
1635 Iceland. In a world of darkened superstition, poverty, and cruelty, Jonas Palmason, a poet and self-taught healer, has been condemned to exile for heretical conduct, having fallen foul of the local magistrate. Banished to a barren island, Jonas recalls his exorcism of a walking corpse, the frenzied massacre of innocent Basque whalers at the hands of local villagers, and the deaths of three of his children.
