KIRKUS REVIEW

Lacking the vigor which is essential to the proper telling of the Norse history, this book does, however, provide considerable information regarding the first European discovers of North America. Erik the Red, Leif the Lucky, Bjarni, Thorwald and his predecessors are all here, woven into a context of battle, insatiable curiosity, and strong family affiliation. Illustrated in color by W. T. Mars, this is a book which will be read more for the factual content it contains than for any particular excitement written into it.
