Una adaptación ilustrada de la saga nórdica, esta historia narra las aventuras de un grupo de vikingos mientras colonizan Groenlandia, Markland y Vinlandia. Los eventos narrados incluyen aquellos que llevaron al destierro de Eirík el Rojo a Groenlandia, así como el descubrimiento por Leif Ericson de Vinlandia, que se cree es la Isla de Terranova, cuando su nave fue desviada de su trayectoria. Se piensa que esta historia fue escrita por primera vez en el siglo XIII, y en la misma se sugiere que los islandeses llegaron a América en el año 1000, cinco siglos antes de la llegada de Cristóbal Colón.
