About the Book

At Bird Mountain, a week has passed since Sigurth is buried in a grand ceremony that finally recognizes the great person he had been. At the cliff where Sigurth died, two cousins, Gunnar, Sigurth's son, and Garth, Sveyin's, look west at the ocean and decide to cross it. They wish to find if Sveyin is still alive, and if the settlement of Norwegians still remains. What follows is an adventure that is anything but what they expected. They find Sveyin, then journey with him into the depths of an enormous land, the size and nature of which could not have been imagined. GITCHE' MANITOU is about the Native Americans and the nations they encountered along the way, nations that existed 500 year before Columbus whose abilities and achievements were in ways equal to any other on earth.


About the Author

Lyle Fugleberg, the founder of an award-winning Architectural firm, retired in 2008 after 45 years of practice. Still alive with sports and community service, he has also taken to write in fictional form about special issues and interests. The latest, his sixth, is prompted by not only his love for history, but also his learning about a time in the history of the Native Americans that needed to be told. What he learned about Native Americans while researching From Bird Mountain, his saga about exploring and colonizing Norsemen around the year 1000AD, led to Gitche' Manitou, about those natives and a culture very different from what has previously been pictured. He and his wife of sixty-five years divide their time between Central Florida and Western North Carolina.
