Five hundred years before Columbus, a Viking woman named Gudrid sailed past the edge of the known world. She landed in the New World and lived there for three years, giving birth to a baby before sailing home. Or so the Icelandic sagas say.
A Viking woman explorer? This book examines the evidence that at least one woman made the voyage to Vinland, in North America, and gives lots of great details about Viking life circa the year 1000. You'll never guess what Greenlanders made clubs out of... -Erika
Through archaeology and close reading of the sagas, Brown tells the story of Gudrid, who traveled far indeed - from Iceland, to Greenland, to North America, and in later life, to Rome.
