Description

Both a record of a fascinating bit of history, and a rich and exciting piece of literature: The two medieval lcelandic sagas translated in this volume tell one of the most arresting stories in the history of exploration – the discovery of America by Norsemen five centuries before Christopher Columbus. The Sagas describe how Eirk the Red founded an Icelandic colony in Greenland and how his son, Leif the Lucky, later sailed south to explore and if possible exploit the chance discovery by Bjarni Herjolfsson of an unknown land.
