about

Well-known mediator and lawyer, Glenn Sigurdson blends personal memoir, family history and Icelandic lore in a unique and wide-ranging autobiography. Vikings on a Prairie Ocean brings to life the people and places of Lake Winnipeg since the arrival of the Icelandicsettlers to its shores in 1875 through the engaging lens of a family legacy of fishing on those waters. The perils of summer and winter fishing on an unpredictable and unforgiving lake are interwoven with accounts of Aboriginal partnerships, colourful characters, and a proud, resilient family.
A native of Riverton, Manitoba, Glenn Sigurdson's background includes experience as a mediator, lawyer, facilitator and negotiator. He is an adjunct Professor at Simon Fraser University and is the co-author of Building Consensus for a Sustainable Future: Putting Principles into Practice. He llives in British Columbia.
