AMERICAN VIKINGS How the Norse Sailed into the Lands and Imaginations of America

by | Read by Byron Wagner

History • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Byron Wagner sounds mostly straightforward as he tells listeners of possible Viking visits along the Canadian and New England coasts. Author Martyn Whittock thoroughly presents the archaeological finds and Norse sagas that raise this possibility. At the same time, he observes how Vikings have landed in the American psyche--whether in the right-wing assertions of groups such as QAnon or in pop culture touchstones like Marvel's Thor. Wagner lightens up for an anecdote about a SpongeBob SquarePants history celebration. He hints of skepticism as he recounts the story of a runestone found on a Minnesota farm. And he speeds up amusingly to narrate lists of other possible Viking landing locations and businesses branded with Viking imagery. This audiobook is an entertaining look at legendary events and their impact. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2024]
