In The Gatewatch Joshua weaves the mythic elements of Norse mythology and the geography of the Canadian Rocky Mountains together in a gripping adventure tale about young troll hunters who must save their homeland from a wicked Troll-King. He draws from the historical translations and modern adaptations of Norse mythology and Icelandic sagas to craft a story that is distinctly northern. His tale of bravery, courage, and cunning has the flavor and feel of a story told long ago amid the depths of winter within the warm fire-lit halls of ancient Scandinavia.
