Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Out at sea fishing, Asterix and Obelix are blown off course in a storm. Luckily they land on the shores of a Roman colony - or is it? Teepees, totems, gobbling birds: it's not what they're used to. And what are the Viking explorers in their longship doing? But perhaps 50 BC is a little too early for a voyage of discovery to this strange New World...

At head of title: Goscinny and Underzo present an Asterix adventure.

Originally published: London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1976.

Asterix and Obelix are lost at sea and finally reach what they think is a Roman colony, but when the Vikings turn up on a voyage of discovery, they realise that they have, in fact, discovered a strange New World. Suggested level: primary, intermediate.
