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 J?nathan (also known as Hans Jonathan) in stunning detail.
