Editorial Reviews

The images of the Vikings professional football team, the stereotype of the 'Norwegian bachelor farmer', and even Minnesotan's speech patterns proclaim the Norwegian heritage of Minnesota. But the Norwegian settlers have contributed much more to the state, as authors Carlton C Qualey and Jon A Gjerde make clear. The Norwegians, who first arrived in territorial days, created lasting farming settlements, especially in the Red River Valley. Their Lutheran churches continue to dot the landscape. But their experience was also urban, as they entered the trades and industries of the Twin Cities. Today, the Norwegian influence is evident in Minnesota art, culture, cuisine, and speech. Norwegian culture permeates the state's character and helps define Minnesota's unique social, political, and business environment.

This is a good starter book for any one interested in this topic. However, I found myself wanting more in depth information. This book is about a rather obscure subject in the first place so I'm glad that someone took the time to write about it. People who are of Minnesota / Norwegian decent (such as myself) will definately enjoy it.

While this book was informative and well-researched it was lacking in detail involving the migration and settlement of Norwegian immigrants to Minnesota. More in-depth discussion and stories of the rural expansion was expected. A good overview, but short on content.

Fantastic!!!!!!! I read it the first two days I had it and have passed it on. I am always striding to gain more knowledge about my roots and this is especially good for Red River Valley Homesteaders and their desendents.
