Far the book's best passages are those most closely tracking the course of the carnelian bead presented as its unifying theme - ie mainly the earliest & final chapters. The latter are particularly strong & inspiring.

The title however, River Kings, is also top-notch. Indeed I wish the author had spent still more time elaborating her exactly correct insistence that mastery of river navigation, both in the West & East, remain the missing, because even now too underexposed, key to Viking strategy, expansion, & success.
