Give me gold that I may buy his ship and sail away upon the seas to find it.
Then Eric the Red gave his son gold in great plenty. Leif was a tall man, of great strength and noble bearing. He was also a man of wisdom, and just in all things, so that men loved and were ready to obey him. Now therefore many men came to him offering to be his companions in adventure, until soon they were a company of thirty-five men. They were all men tall and of great strength, with fair golden hair and eyes blue as the sea upon which they loved to sail, save only Tyrker the German. Long time this German had lived with Eric the Red and was much beloved by him.
Tyrker also loved Leif dearly, for he had known him since he was a child, and was indeed his foster father. So he was eager to go with Leif upon this adventurous voyage. Tyrker was very little and plain.

His forehead was high and his eyes small and restless. He wore shabby clothes, and to the blue-eyed, fair-haired giants of the North he seemed indeed a sorry-looking little fellow. But all that mattered little, for he was a clever craftsman, and Leif and his companions were glad to have him go with them. Then, all things being ready, Leif went to his father and, bending his knee to him, prayed him to be their leader.
But Eric the Red shook his head. Then Eric looked longingly at the sea. His heart bade him go out upon it once again ere he died.
So he yielded to the prayers of his son and, mounting upon his horse, he rode towards the ship. When the sea-farers saw him come they set up a shout of welcome. But when Eric was not far from the ship the horse upon which he was riding stumbled, and he was thrown to the ground.
He tried to rise but could not, for his foot was sorely wounded. Now they busied themselves and set their dragon-headed vessel in order. And when all was ready they spread their gaily-coloured sails, and sailed out into the unknown sea.
Westward and ever westward they sailed towards the setting of the sun. For many days they sailed yet they saw no land: nought was about them but the restless, tossing waves. But at length one day to their watching eyes there appeared a faint grey line far on the horizon.

Then their hearts bounded for joy. They had not sailed in vain, for land was near. Let it not be said of us that we passed it by as he did. So, casting anchor, Leif and his companions launched a boat and went ashore. But it was no fair land to which they had come.
Far inland great snow-covered mountains rose, and between them and the sea lay flat and barren rock, where no grass or green thing grew. It seemed to Leif and his companions that there was no good thing in this land. Then he and his companions went back to the ship and put out to sea once more. They came to land again after some time, and again they cast anchor and launched a boat and went ashore.

This land was flat. Broad stretches of white sand sloped gently to the sea, and behind the level plain was thickly wooded. Then again Leif and his companions returned to the ship, and mounting into it they sailed away upon the sea. And now fierce winds arose, and the ship was driven before the blast so that for days these seafarers thought no more of finding new lands, but only of the safety of their ship. But at length the wind fell, and the sun shone forth once more.
Then again they saw land, and launching their boat they rowed ashore. To the eyes of these sea-faring men, who for many days had seen only the wild waste of waters, the land seemed passing fair.
