Shelves: 900s-history
A good concise history of why Norwegians emmigrated. Read the Foreward.(13)Current Norwegian culture, and the driving historical norms that are still present today in 3rd-4th generation American-Norwegians.

A concise, informative account of the Norwegian migration to America in the 19th century. Read in connection with my recent trip to Norway to visit Eidfjord, the village of my ancestors. I liked this book.

Interesting to read. Recognizing places and names. Knew we had spareribs for Christmas Eve, but I didn't know that it was traditional.

Great overview of the effect on both sides of the Atlantic during the "migration years" in Norway--- approximately 1825-1914. Very insightful, well-documented, full foot notes and bibliography.

Interesting to read about areas our ancestors came from, and to think about how they were a part of this story.
