Considered to be one of the finest works of Ingri and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire, children and adults alike will delight in the adventures of Leif the Lucky, son of Erik the Red, who “sailed with his father to Greenland and who later sailed farther west and found the continent of America.”
In this charming and lavishly illustrated hardcover edition, Leif is a sturdy, blond-haired Viking boy who crosses uncharted seas to an unknown land with his father. Written in the spirit of the ancient sagas and rich in color and detail, Leif the Lucky is a fascinating biography of the young Viking explorer.

A book best read with another with whom you would like to embark a journey. Presentation at one's wedding ceremony to symbolize the embark on a new life with another is an appropriate return to or discovery of the book in adulthood. Without initializing my read, Leemurs are what I believe Lief met when discovering VInland. Vinland and Finland rhyme implying either the shortest voyage around Earth due to proximity to the Artic which seems unlikely. Svalbard was discovered. I wait to read. No was is experienced enough for a journey with a partner like myself.
Great pictures, wonderful book for making history come alive for kids.
A very enjoyable book about the dreams of a young Leif Erikson. Excellent illustrations.
