This little book is a record of travels in Iceland, of which the pleasure was greatly enhanced by the saga-lore previously acquired, and the legends gathered by the wayside. I am not aware that any other book about Iceland has taken the special line that I have attempted to follow in mine - the connection of the land with the sagas; and it may therefore assist some of the tourists who now visit the island in increasing numbers to enter more into its peculiar charm of local legend and past literature. These journeys, made in three different years, were full of enjoyment, which increased with the knowledge of the language, and larger acquaintance with the Icelanders themselves. For much true kindness and hospitality, to which I cannot here do full justice, I take this opportunity of thanking my many friends in the island.
