Leif the Lucky

$17.95

From the publisher:

Considered by some children’s book authorities to be the d’Aulaire’s finest work, this biography of Leif Erickson, son of Eric the Red, best exemplifies the artists’ skill in Norwegian folk art, style, and history. Their well-researched text is lavishly illustrated with Viking rune-like carvings, from the dragon prow of the ship that Leif must hurry to remove, lest it anger the spirits of the land, to the stave churches so unique to Norway. Landscapes depict emerald green fjords against floes of ice and mountains of snow. The grand halls of King Olav Trygvason are ornamented with carvings of Nordic mythical creatures while tame polar bear cubs romp and play.
