    One thought on “The Race of the Birkebeiners”

    1. I have wanted to read The Race of the Birkebeiners for years, after the Norwegian skiing race piqued my interest Based upon a saga, it is a rather slight but full bodied tale about the way in which said race came about The illustrations are nice, and this is a lovely volume to settle down with during a long winter s night.

    2. Fictionalized account of a true story of medieval Norway, in which the staunch warriors called the Birkebeiners race against the weather and the enemy on skis, through a storm to get a baby prince to safety The art is what makes this book the text was sometimes clunky and overly wordy.

    3. J398.2 Lunge LarsenThe Race of the Birkebeiners by Lise Lunge LarsenThis is a true story about a long cold ski race by some of history s first famous skiers in Norway The Birkebeiners were mostly peasants in the year 1206, and when they went into battle, it was without expensive armor They wrapped birchbark around their legs, and were called Birkebeiners which means Birchleggers On Christmas Eve, a prince is brought to the Birkbeiners, fleeing the Baglers, who were conducting raids From Lilleham [...]

    4. My children love hearing folktales from other cultures lands, so I grabbed this off the library shelf thinking it was a fictional Norwegian tale Come to find out, I was appropriately schooled regarding the Birkebeiners a rebellious political party in Norway that are remembered for escorting the baby heir of the Norwegian throne to safety on a long and perilous journey The Catholicism peppered through out the story and the miracle at the end were a nice surprise, too The Birkebeiners were glad th [...]

    7. This is a wonderful story taken from an epic tale.The illustrations are colorful and very Norwegian This is a tale of good vs evil, and endurance and doing what is right for a cause Use it to introduce children to other countries and their tales and beliefs It might be interesting to read the entire saga for my own understanding as well.

    8. Text is a bit sententious It s neat that the illustrations were done with wood blocks the textures are interesting However, the end result isn t what I could call beautiful Overall, the main attraction of the book is that it s easier to show someone this book than explain the origins of the Birkebeiner Races.

    9. The story is a well written short story for children It is a tale based on a true saga that took place in Norway It has heroism, faith, and struggle I liked it very much I also like how it ties skiing with the culture of Norway.
