In Search of First Contact by Annette Kolodny

In Search of First Contact by Annette Kolodny

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,026|Likes:
In this accessible account, Kolodny explores the overlaps and differences between Native and Norse accounts of the Vikings in North America. Many scholars have tried to interpret the Vinland Sagas as texts or in relation to the archaeological record. By giving Indian stories at least as much weight as the sagas themselves, Kolodny is able to give a fuller and more accurate sense of what may have happened. In addition she turns an interested and skeptical eye to the varied amateur, touristic, and scholarly investments in the Viking presence in North America.
