Slav Outposts-Gerald Stone book

Just finished reading this book-found the World War 2 through present interesting as I have read a lot about the era but had not placed the Wends in the events. More interested in the Lusatian Wends though I found the Pomeranian Wends interesting. Somewhere, sometime in my reading I came across a story that said the Vikings would raid Wendish settlements on the Baltic, take prisoners and sell them as slaves along their routes into the interior of Eurasia. I now understand that there were indeed Wends on the Baltic coast-my understanding of Wends was confined to Lusatia. Praise Gerald Stone for having a gift for language-is someone recording dead languages for posterity or is that a futile thing to do if no one understands it?
