Helge IngstadA biography
On a fall day in 1960, the Norwegian explorer and writer Helge Ingstad discovered the first proof of Norse settlements in America. This discovery gained him and his achaeologist wife world fame.
In 1926 Helge Ingstad had left a law practice in Norway in favor of a life as a trapper around the Great Slave Lake in northern Canada. His debut as an author came with The Land of Feast and Famine in 1931, which became an immediate bestseller in Norway and was rapidly translated into to several languages. His life as a trapper in Canada was followed by a chain of diverse expeditions from Sierra Madres in Arizona to the Brooks Range in Alaska. All of his expeditions were followed by bestselling books that have inspired generations.
By thourough research into a host of archives and a range of interviews with people in Norway, Canada and elsewhere, this biography throws new light over this unique personality.
