Sagas & Sea Smoke
A young archeologist and her journalist friend join an eclectic mix of anthropologists descending on L'Anse aux Meadows, Canada, the only verified Viking encampment in North America and the planet's first UNESCO World Heritage Site. After thirty-five years, the site is being re-excavated because a new clue has surfaced that might solve a one-thousand-year-old murder. An epic journey of discovery continues where East met West, the past meets the present, and Come-from-Aways meet Newfoundlanders. A modern saga of mystery, magic and mayhem is about to be written.
