About this book

Excerpt from Erik the Red, Leif the Lucky: And Other Pre-Columbian Discoverers of America:

Madoc, the Welsh prince, who, if the story be true, must have gone as far south as Florida; the still more mythical adventures of the brothers Zeno of Venice; and the interview of Columbus with the Bishop of Skalholt in 1477, fifteen years before he sailed in search of the East Indies and found the West Indies.
