In "Mount Robson Mystery" by Lynn Tanod, some people believe Kain is the first person to reach Mount Robson, I; however, believe George Kinney is the first person to reach Mount Robson because he is determined, thwarted, and partnered with Phillips.

Many people in this world don’t have the correct knowledge of what has happened in the past. There has been a lot of misconceptions that people have about North America. A common misconception that has spread throughout the world is that Christopher Columbus discovered America. That statement is more than 100% false.

The second version comes from “Saga of the Greenlanders.” This version says the when Leif made it back to Greenland, a trader from Icelandic named Bjarni Herjolfsson told Erikson about North America when he overshot Greenland and saw the new land. If this version is true, that would mean that Bjarni would be the one that actually discovered North America, but because it was stated that he never stepped foot on the land, he actually didn’t. But both “Saga of Erik the Red” and “Saga of the Greenlanders” end in the same way, Leif Erikson finding North
