The Navigatio Sancti Brendani recounts the seven-year voyage on the North Atlantic of a band of sixth-century Irish monks. Under the direction of the holy abbot, St. Brendan, these men set sail in a boat of ox hides stretched over a wooden frame. Their little craft was often carried into uncharted waters, and the monks continually confronted new situations and unfamiliar landscapes. The people they met, the wonders they saw, and the dangers they escaped are all presented by the anonymous author in simple pictures that even landlubbers can enjoy.
