The island nation of Iceland is known for many things - majestic landscapes, volcanic eruptions, distinctive seafood - but racial diversity is not one of them. So the little-known story of Hans Jonathan, a free black man who lived and raised a family in early nineteenth-century Iceland, is improbable and compelling, the stuff of novels. In this volume, Gisli Palsson lays out the story of Hans Jónathan (also known as Hans Jonathan) in stunning detail.
