Publisher Description

These two medieval Icelandic sagas tell one of the most astonishing stories in the history of exploration-the discovery of America by two Norsemen, Eirik the Red and Bjarni Herjolfsson, over 500 years before Christopher Columbus. A fascinating bit of history and a distinctive piece of world literature, The Vinland Sagas is the definitive record of Europe's first glimpse of the North American continent.

What a gem

So grateful to have these incredible sagas in audio form. If you're at all interested in historic Nordic culture, give these a listen. You can't get any closer to front row seat in how these people thought and lived. Cheap at twice the price.
More Icelandic sagas please! So much great, vital literature to draw on.
