    Written as a screenplay concept by one of my favorite authors Nevil Shute, Vinland the Good was a book I unexpectedly couldn't put down. I picked it up at the library thinking it was an unusual topic for Shute, but its themes revisit those encountered in An Old Captivity. I opened it last night predicting I'd read a few pages before turning in and read on into the night. I woke around 2 AM and picked it up again. I turned the pages til I reached the last, relishing every moment! The story starts as young Major Callendar aged 27 returns from WWII to take up his teaching position again at an English public schcool that he'd left for the war after only a year as an unremarkable instructor. The headmaster and his two assistant masters all over age sixty arrange the school's schedule so that upon Callendar's return he'll have to teach the school's new required course in American history that none of the older men want to teach. War, world travel, and two stints as a prisoner of war have changed Callendar from the uncertain young man who left the school six years before. Major Callendar starts by asking his students if any of them can tell him who first discovered america? Unbeknownst to Callendar, the headmaster is uncertain of his new instructor's ability and he listens in through a crack in the adjoining room's communicating door. What the headmaster hears from the room next door is not the story of John Cabot and Christopher Columbus that everyone expected.When one of the students questions the new teacher's verson of history, remarking that "it says Cabot in the book" Callendar answers back, "well, the book's wrong then" and so begins a story of Norse sea-going exploration and settlement that starts in AD 1002,

    I very seldom read plays, and almost never a screen play, so I never would have read this one had it not been by Nevil Shute. I'm glad I did. It's a rather engaging little piece, telling some of the well-known Icelandic saga in a fanciful and romanticized manner, probably aimed at students (in fact it's introduced as a classroom presentation). My biggest complaint is that it's all too brief, I was hoping for more substance. Shute didn't seem to concern himself with demonstrable facts -- it's very doubtful for example that Lief Ericsson actually reached Cape Cod, although other Vikings may have done so later on -- but much of the Viking history is half-legend in any case, so the whole thing provides endless possibilities for great story-telling.It causes me to consider going back and re-reading some of the more scholarly treatments of the topic, notably Mowat's "Westviking" and to investigate further what evidence there may be of a Viking contact with the new England coast.

    This is a book I read years ago and I enjoyed it immensely. I’ve read all of Nevil Shute’s books. The best by far is “A Town Like Alice.”

    Written in the format of a screenplay, this is a telling of the discovery of America by Eric the Red long before Columbus’ voyage. The setting of the tale is a boys school in England and the headmaster who takes over the teaching of the History class for the Lower Fifth. Scenes from the school are interspersed with the historical account of Lief Erikson and Eric the Red. Generally I don't do well with reading plays getting too hung up on the dialog names. But this was an easy read and after the first few pages I was able to settle in and not have to read the name at the start of each dialog. It's typical Shute format in terms of the story within the story.

    A fictional story about Leif Ericsson's finding of North America.

    This was about Leif Erikson's discovery of Cape Cod. It's written as a script and in nothing like Nevil Shute's other books.

    A wonderful play extolling the virtues of imagination in the classroom. By a wonderful writer.
