Considered one of the finest works of Ingri and Edgar Pain d'Aulaire, Leif the Lucky will delight both children and adults with the adventures of Leif, son of Erik the Red, who sailed with his father and a Viking crew to Greenland and then father west to the continent of America. In this charming and lavishly illustrated tale, Leif is a sturdy, adventurous Viking boy who crosses uncharted seas to arrive at "a beautiful land with forests of strange trees growing all the way down to the shores."Leif wrestles with polar bear cubs, watches the fierce Norse gods race in the glow of the Northern Lights, and becomes a strong and courageous hunter. Written in the spirit of the ancient sagas and rich in color and detail, it tells a fascinating story of a young Viking explorer.
