Until the author went to live with them, in order to learn more about their customs and traditions, they had no contact whatever with white men other than with the operator of an airline who occasionally flew to them some urgent supples. Otherwise they depended upon the wilds for their sustenance, and mainly on the caribou that in summer passed northwards through their homeland towards the Arctic Ocean in the autumn moved back in their thousands towards the south, except when the herds failed and that meant starvation for all." -from the dustjacket.

First American Edition. Pp (8),11-250 +40 pp. of plates. 8vo, maroon cloth. O'Dea 3822b. Much on Newfoundland & L abrador. See index. "Five centuries before Columbus made his epic journey to the New World, a party of Viking explorers led by Leif Eiriksson set sailfrom Greenland westward to the North American continent on a voyage of dis covery. When they returned the next year, they told stories of a new and fertile country rich in wild life of all inds, with forests, wheat fields, and grazing land. Many pioneers followed in Eiriksson's wake to settle in thecountry they called Vinland the Good. For hundreds of years, scholars have argued over the location of Vinland -- a debate reopened by the discovery of the controversial Vinland Map in 1957. The most popular theory places Vinland far to the south of North America, but no trace of the Vikings has ever been found there. In 'Land Under the Pole Star', the eminent Norwegian explorer Helge Ingstad presented evidence pointing to northern Newfoundland as the site of Vinland. In his new book, he describes the six expeditions between 1960 and 1967 which led to the discovery of the remains of the firstindisputably Norse settlement to be found in North America. After yeras of studying the Icelandic sagas and exploring the Atlantic coastline, Ingstad found what he had been looking for in the remote fishing village of L'Anse -aux-Meadows at the northern tip of Newfoundland. House sites and a smithy dating back a thousand years were excavated, but the most important find was a Norse spinning tool -- the earliest known European household artifact to be found in North America." - from the dustjacket.
