Description


Explore the Captivating Life of Erik the Red

A formidable figure with flaming red hair, a wild beard, and a temper to match is not the type of person most people would choose to cross swords with. And that, by all accounts, is a fitting description of Erik the Red. This was not a man to be taken lightly or challenged in battle. He was courageous on the battlefield, an accomplished seafarer, indomitable warrior, and unstoppable adventurer. In short, Erik the Red was everything we imagine a Viking to be.

Some of the topics covered in this captivating history book include:

  • Erik the Red's Early Life in Norway
  • The Settlement of Iceland and the Viking Age
  • Erik's Early Years in Iceland
  • Murder Most Foul
  • Erik the Explorer
  • Settling in Greenland
  • Greenland to Vinland
  • Erik's Offspring and their voyages to Vinland
  • Decline of Vinland
  • Erik the Pagan and Christianity in Greenland
  • The Decline of the Greenland Colony
