Description
If you ask children in Ireland who really discovered America, you may get this surprising answer: "St. Brendan, of course". He left Ireland 1,500 years ago in a leather boat to find paradise. Tales of the wonders he and his crew saw and the Monster Territory they encountered during their trip have become part of Irish legend. And legend also says that the island of unsurpassed beauty that St. Brendan called paradise was actually America.
