by Ingri and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire
Inspired by rich sagas and infused with history, Leif — son of Erik the Red —Joins his father’s expeditions to Greenland and America, an unknown place to Europeans at that time. Leif, in fact, grew up in Greenland.
This is a rich story generously illustrated with Nordic motifs. Written for children but enjoyed by adults as well, this book has been considered one of the d’Aulaire’s finest works. The sagas of Old Norse and the history of Scandinavia were close to the authors’ hearts, and the reader is the benefactor.
