Publisher Description:

Hold on to your Viking helmets as you learn about the first known European to set foot on North America in this exciting addition to the Who Was? series!

Leif Erikson was born to be an explorer. His father, Erik the Red, had established the first European settlement in present-day Greenland, and although he didn't yet know it, Leif was destined to embark on an adventure of his own. The wise and striking Viking landed in the area known as Vinland almost five centuries before Christopher Columbus even set sail! "Leif the Lucky" and the other fierce, sea-fearing pirates were accomplished navigators who raided foreign lands for resources, hunted for their food, and passed down Old Norse myths from one generation to the next. This book gives readers a detailed account of what life was like during the time of the Vikings.

Category Description for Who Was? Biographies:

These biographies highlight the lives of famous people in a story-telling format. The easy-to-read stories are captivating and black and white illustrations are featured on every page. From birth to death, details of the people's lives are given in a fun and entertaining way. The books are about a hundred pages each. Though the stories are told in a fun way with many illustrations, they still give much historical information about each person and the world around them. They are great for introducing historical figures to younger students or giving a general overview of the person for older students. A timeline of the person's life events and other world events is included in each book. ~ Rachel
