In this tale of adventure and evangelism, R. M. Ballantyne transforms into engaging historical fiction the well-known facts of the Icelandic Saga--stories of exploration and adventure, blessed marriage, alternating turmoil and peace with indigenous people--all sprinkled with delightful and humorous stories of day-to-day life surrounding the first European groundbreaking in America. The Norsemen in the West, or America Before Columbus carries the reader back in time nearly a thousand years, to the days of Leif Ericsson and the early settlements of the seafaring Norsemen. Journey from the shores of Greenland to earliest-recorded America, a plentiful land of lush forests, crystal clear lakes and rivers and abundant fish and game.
As America is introduced to its newest settlers, those settlers are being introduced to the Truth found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many of the most important decisions made by the leaders of the settlement are influenced by this Truth as it begins to take root in their hearts. Accordingly, The Norsemen in the West offers the best elements of a frontier story: adventure, battle, peace, and redemption.
