"Finally, I am writing the book with a background of personal experience, and am not like Strabo, who criticized Pytheas from the security of his library. I have crossed all the seas mentioned in it in ships of under a hundred tons burden, and have wandered on the shores of all the lands, except Wineland the Good." - from T. C. Lethbridge's Introduction, pp. xviii-xix. "It is a remarkable picture, this voyaging of Christian monks to the far north. The skin boat skimmed like a stormy petrel over the surface of the ocean. An endless succession of fulmars glided by and peered like owls into the men's faces." - p. 77.
