Additional Info

“Documentary in content, narrative in style, heart-warming in impact, <em>Nyja Island</em> is my idea of an "heirloom". Reflecting on the personal testimonies of the Vestur Islendinga, I am humbly reminded that I am not only a descendent of the settlers, but also, of the survivors.” — Norma Guttormsson, Logberg-Heimskringla
