Last Kings of North America

Friday, October 5th, 2012 Knights of Columbus Hall 1114 American Boulevard W. Bloomington, MN Icelandic Cod Dinner, Celebration Speakers: Robert G. Johnson and Janey Westin,: The Last Kings Of Norse America: Runestone Keys To A Lost Empire Reservation Form Attached! Robert Johnson, and his daughter, Janey Westin have produced a carefully researched historical novel , detailing events occurring in the lives of King Haakon 6, both on, and around the year 1356, when King Magnus of Norway has sent his son, the future King Haakon 6, along with his mentor Knutson, on a voyage to the Norse settlements in Amerika in an attempt to enlarge the fur trading g business with numerous Indian tribes both in the eastern areas, as well as areas which are now known as USA not Kanada. They describe events in Europe in the 1300s, and fully follow the journeys of Haakon and Knutson as they travel across the Atlantic, weather s storm, and in this storm, lose many of their crews. They also expand upon known historical facts to describe events which explain many theories, in which many of the early Norse traders who chose to live among their neighbors, and are now known as the Iroquois and Mandan Tribes Numerous appendices go deeply and exhaustively into a line by line and letter by blotter translations for both the Spirit Pond stones, as well as the Kensington Stone. There is no reasonable doubt that the message encrypted in the Kensington Stone is both authentic, and as the authors detail, verifiable. This is an engrossing, and arresting story, which I have found to be both convincing, and enthralling. Keith Stinson.
