Description
A former deck hand on Cape Cod fishing boats and the author of A Sailor's Valentine and Salt Luck, Craig Moodie has seawater in his veins. In this adventure yarn for readers 10 to 13, based on Viking sagas, he introduces us to 12-year-old Finn in Greenland in 1000 AD, left behind to tend the flock while his brothers and his father, explorer Olaf Farseeker, pursue tales of a vast land to the west. But Olaf has not returned, so when Leif Ericsson himself arrives in Greenland, also preparing to sail west, Finn stows away on his ship, hoping to find his father in the new land.

"Moodie's first novel for youth falls squarely between Nancy Farmer's Sea of Trolls and Henrietta Branford's The Fated Sky.... It is solidly written, middle-grade historical fiction that introduces Viking life and lore with a focus on exploration rather than pillage."Booklist
