A History of the Swedish People: Volume 1: From Prehistory to the Renaissance by Vilhelm Moberg

Beginning in prehistoric times and culminating with the Dacke rebellion of 1542, renowned novelist Vilhelm Mobergs two-volume popular history of the Swedish people approaches its subject from the viewpoint of the common people, documenting peasants lives as well as those of the royal families. In this first volume Moberg examines Viking raids, the coming of Christianity, and the Folkungs royal dynasty, whose tyrannical reign lasted from 1250 to the 1360s. He vividly describes the arrival of the Black Death from a ship that docked carrying only dead passengers, and he recounts the reign of Queen Margareta who founded the Kalmar Union, comprising all of Scandinavia. In every chapter, Moberg faithfully imparts how history affected the whole people of Sweden.
