The United States of Vinland: The Landing (The Markland Trilogy 1), by Colin Taber. (Still 0.99?)

"One of the more enjoyable alternate history reads I've read for a long time. The story is interesting and uses fact wherever possible; the characters are plausible and very human in their reactions. Best of all the story doesn't descent in to melodrama or war-porn. The action is relevant, interesting and appropriate and serves to advance the story, not act as a primer in military technology and tactics. The writer also has an interesting style - the text reads in a Norse voice - one of the hardest tricks for any writer to pull off . This helps pull the reader in to the story and establishes a view of the world from an insider's perspective (in this case the medieval Norse) that helps to bring the story alive. Five stars and I'll definitely be buying the next one." -- Amazon reviewer

What if?

What if the descendants of the Vikings who settled Greenland and went on to reach North America around the end of the first millennium had stayed?

Five hundred years later, would Christopher Columbus have arrived to the south of an eastern seaboard dotted with centuries old settlements and towns hosting devotees to Thor and Odin?

Might the Norse have gone on to build a nation as dominant as the United States of our own world?

A thousand years after reaching Greenland, Vinland and Markland, would we still have had two world wars? What might the world look like? Where might the political and religious divides be drawn?

This is the New World.

***

At the turn of the first millennium:

Eskil, orphaned in war, but now a man, is leading his followers to found a settlement dedicated to Asgard’s gods in the newly discovered lands in the west. There, after tests, adventures and challenges, he will leave a legacy that will grow to become the strongest nation the world has ever seen.

The Landing is the first book in The United States of Vinland series and is an alternate history that begins the saga with the establishment of the first Markland halls.

Welcome to Norse America.
