Eric the Red founded a new country 1,000 years ago—Greenland. Then his son Leif itched for adventures of his own. He had heard tales of another huge continent to the west. With only the stars to guide him, young Leif sailed off in his wooden ship.
Drawing on the powerful Norse sagas, Elizabeth Janeway tells the true stories of Eric, Leif, and the other daring Vikings who journeyed to North America—and their attempts to settle in that rich new land.
