Leif Eriksson

by Shannon Knudsen


Quick Overview

As a young man growing up in Greenland, Leif Ericsson had heard stories about a land to the west across the Atlantic Ocean. One day, he gathered a crew and set off to explore the land himself.
  • Details

    Knudsen introduces Eriksson from his life as a Viking boy in approximately 985 to his exploration of North America and his eventual return to Greenland. Soft, impressionistic-style watercolor paintings illustrate the text beautifully. There seems to be much speculation on facts and thoughts, and the book reads more like historical fiction than biography. He landed at three different places, finally settling at “Vinland”, now Newfoundland, Canada, for the winter. When he returned home, he became a hero, and inspired many other Vikings to explore the new world. Size 0.14" H x 8.52" L x 5.86" W, 48 pages
