I give the writer credit for having done a fair amount of research into pre-Columbian European voyages and attempted colonizations of North America, especially as it was written prior to the age of the internet search engine and is well-Bibliographied. Likewise, her research into AmerIndian tribal culture and legends for the era. Those are her strengths. Building and developing relationships between characters, except for a few flashes of indirect empathy, is not.

There have been many stories from Native Americans about White Men in their history, but the white men hearing this ignored it because they did not believe it. Madoc is a Welshman who took three ships from Wales to the Norse secret isles. He found the North American continent instead. This book is about his travels across the Atlantic and in parts of the Southeast America.
An easy-to read story. Well worth the time.
