IN QUEST OF THE WHITE MANDAN
About the Book
In Quest of the White Mandan is about the white people who became integrated into the native Indian band of North Dakota Mandans. In the Seventeen hundreds the French Canadian explorer La Veranday with his sons found a Indian tribe with fair skinned people blue eyes, blonde and red haired, living in what was later to become North Dakota. Many years later Lewis and Clark found these fair skinned people with the Mandans as they made their trip to the Pacific. I learned about these people who must of come from Europe hundreds of years earlier. How did these people make their way into the center of North America?? Some speculate that they were Welsh people who came up the Mississippi River. In Newfoundland Canada, the dwellings built by the Vikings at Lance Meadows and the house built by the Mandan’s are exact replicas of each other. The waters of Hudson Bay flow into it from waters that lead into Lake Winnipeg after a land bridge is crossed. The Red River of North Dakota flows directly into Lake Winnipeg. Many Viking remains and artefacts have been found in Minnesota and Wisconsin. If the Vikings who settled in Lance Meadows found their way north into Hudson Bay, losing their boats to ice could easily happen. The only way out of this desolate place is south into the interior of North America. In Quest of the White Mandan’s Book One, is my version of how these people came to be the White Mandans. I have brought them to the shores of lake Winnipeg in book one. God willing, I will take them further to their final home on the Missouri River in North Dakota in Book Two.
