Editorial Reviews

Review

"Swedish Exodus is the translation (and excellently rendered it is) of Den Stora Utvandringen. Its ten chapters serve as an admirable introduction to the subject and they are supplemented by a good, if selective, bibliography. . . .

"It is a tribute to this admirable survey that one is left at the end wishing for more personal details of the fascinating adventures of these pioneers."—Times Literary Supplement

25 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Virginia Sholin Smallwood on November 18, 2000
Format: Paperback
"Swedish Exodus" is an indespensible reference for Swedish researchers. In these pages one can find out why so many Swedes decided to come to America, how they mananged it, where they emigrated to in America, how many came during each year of the mass migration, how many remigrated each year, how many came from each major Swedish district, and how they did in America. It even outlines the consequences of the emigration on Sweden. It is nicely indexed, contains a useful bibliography, and is illustrated with photos and drawings.

Format: Paperback
Being of Swedish descent I always wondered why my forebears came here. Now I know. Concise. Not wordy. Good for someone that wants a good simple explanation of the Swedish Exodus.

Format: Paperback
The chapters of this book set out the points of major importance about Swedish emigration to America. This is good as a place to start reading about Scandinavian emigration studies and its solid selected bibliography is helpful for guidance to more academic works.
