Description

"An award-winning book about the travels and battles of the Vikings in North America, taken from ancient Norwegian writings. Evidence is presented on how and why the Vikings' ""Vinland"" was actually Cape Cod, and could not have been anywhere else. Indian histories also reveal Viking landings here, as do recently discovered artifacts. This book traces Vikings and Indians in battle up through King Philip's War."
