Most Helpful Customer Reviews

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Jay R. Clasen on September 16, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I find this book to be very well written, researched and valuable. It tells the immigrant story with grace and compassion, delving into the motivations, disappointments and successes of the generations. Not only those of Norwegian descent will understand the challenges and victories of immigrant people. It is a book that addresses common fears and the ways the community rises up to overcome adversity. It is worth rereading several times.

This is one of the classics on the Norwegian-American experience. Lots of photos, well written. I'm still reading it.
