Njal's Saga is a 13th-century Icelandic saga, an account of events that took place in southern Iceland between 950 and 1015.


  • [Njal] said, 'Where are you going, Skarphedin?'
    'To look for your sheep,' he said.
    Njal said, 'You wouldn't be armed if you planned that, so it must be something else.'
    'We're going salmon-fishing, father, if we don't find the sheep,' he said.
    'If that's so, then it would be a good thing if the prey didn't slip away,' said Njal.
