I would recommend the reading to anyone researching for the history of Norwegian immigrants.

Details of the settlement of the midwest are covered in this book, which help explain the attitudes and philosophy of the people in the area today.

The book tied together many bits of information I'd uncovered over years of doing genealogical research.

I read this very quickly, yet thoroughly. The book tied together many bits of information I'd uncovered over years of doing genealogical research. I appreciated specific accounts of life aboard ship, travel routes and early settlements. Good descriptions of interrelationships among immigrants made a lasting impression. It also gave me new directions to pursue in my research. This is worth reading even if one doesn't have Norwegian ancestors because many of their hardships apply to all newcomers to America.

The author provides valuable information on the migration of Norwegians to America from a Norwegian perspective, but also helps fill in historical gaps for Americans. Details of the settlement of the midwest are covered in this book, which help explain the attitudes and philosophy of the people in the area today. In a very matter-of-fact way, the author presents the considerable Norwegian contributions to the development of the frontier - why they came, where they came from and how they adapted to their new environment. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in understanding regional differences in America as well as their Norwegian roots.

This book has been helpful for understanding my Norwegian grandfather's life. He died long before any of his grandchildren were born, so this fills in some of the gaps in my imagination about what his life might have been like before he met and married my Irish grandmother.

This book had just what I was looking for. Genealogy is not as easy as one might think, but with this information my written segments are now much clearer to my children and their children.
I would recommend the reading to anyone researching for the history of Norwegian immigrants.

An excellent review of the factors that led so many Norwegians to emigrate to America in the 19th century. Norway was second only to Ireland in the percentage of the population that emigrated to America.
