Land of Feast and Famine.

Ingstad sold his successful legal practice in 1926 and travelled to Canada, spending three years as a trapper in the Northwest Territories. On his return in 1960 he would unearth proof that the Vikings had reached the New World 500 years before Columbus. Scarce in the dust jacket.
