Among these men are Olav Sigurdsson—a young man sailing to prove his bravery to the king and to reclaim his father’s lost honor—and Eirik the Laplander, deeply loyal to Olav’s family, but a pagan viewed with suspicion by the other Christian Scandinavians. Upon confirming the disappearance of a whole settlement, Paul and his party follow a sparse trail of clues south across the seas toward “Vinland” (modern-day Canada) —convinced that some of the colonists may still be alive. As the valiant band perseveres in the pursuit of answers for its king, going ever deeper south and westward into an unknown continent, Olav’s desire for justice for his father finally merges with the desire for success in their difficult quest. The Door to the North is another stirring example of Elizabeth Coatsworth’s authentic and captivating historical storytelling.
