This migration was documented in the oral history of the Lenape Indians and rediscovered in the 19th century. Scholars have always felt strongly that readers from high school to adults should know more about this true history of America.
Now author Myron Paine has narrated this fascinating history in two fictionalized accounts called Frozen Trail to Merica. They are Vol. I, Talerman, and Vol. 2, Walking to Merica.
Scholars with previous knowledge of these events are grateful that these books have been written, and many people prefer to learn their history from exciting novels rather than a dry relation of events in a formal textbook.
Every day, more evidence of the Frozen Trail story is turning up. The 1720 Carte Du Canada (Map of Canada) shows the largest Christian settlement in North America was around James Bay, just as the oral histories predicted.

Talerman Volume 1 “Frozen Trail to Merica”
This book solves not only the mysterious disappearance of Norse from the Western Settlement of Greenland in the 1300s, but also deciphers Delaware (Lenape) Indian history found to have been written in Old Norse. The fictional plot is based on Chapter 3 of Walam Olum, a manuscript of pictograms and verses first published in 1836 and based on engravings on bark given in payment for treatment to a Dr. Ward of Indiana by an old Leni Lenape Indian.
Walking to Merica volume 2 “Frozen Trail to Merica”
“In a bold tour de force of historical fiction, author Myron Paine leads the reader into the neglected area of early Nordic influence on people and places in Northeast America. Working on the premise that fourteenth-century problems of climate (global cooling) and political and ideological pressure drove some populations of Greenland across frozen wasteland to points as far south as the Canadian and United States Midwest and down to the Atlantic coast, Paine, through the introduction of likely characters, ably demonstrates the trials and tribulations of the wanderers. The author fortifies his thesis with archaeological evidence and historical references. A good read.”
