Format: Hardcover
This is the first study of Norwegian immigrants in Brooklyn and the New York City area. It focuses on the maritime migration fron Norway, and explores the ethinic community that emerged around 1900. It is a well-reserached, well-written and richly illustrated book, and should be of interest to anyone interested in the history of Norwegian migration to America.

Format: Hardcover
A book that sparks the interest of any Norwegian-American living
in the United States. A detail of the arrival and settlement
of our Norwegian ancestors who arrived by boat and took up residence
in their new country. A well-worth reading.
