This account of the Norwegian's first discovery and colonization of America is based upon the translation of Harold the Younger's journal. Discovered just 200 years ago, Harald's journal revealed the exploits and foibles of a clumsy and menacing, yet endearing, boy who grew up to be the only living survivor of Bjarni Herjolfsson's not so legendary voyage to America in 985 and the Vikings' botched attempt at colonization. Part history, part poetic license, this novel is pure delight to those who appreciate a good medieval story.
