Peculiar people, outsiders, outcasts even. This book covers a number of those people that for some reason did not fit into the social accepted norm of their time. The authors find their examples from various sources, papers, magazines, folktales and the parliamentary records. Also how these characters shed a light on how poverty was perceived. This is the twenty eighth volume in the series about Icelandic folk culture.
