Fun Read

Loved reading this book. Reminded me of stories my father would tell us about his life. Loved how it felt as if you were in the room being told the story face to face. Enjoyable!!

As stated in the title this is the story of Swen, a boy raised in a rural Northeastern Minnesota farm.

One poignant example is how Swen had to deal with the farm’s cats and all their kittens. Swede: A Country Boy's Story chronicles the events of every day farm life and how it changed through time.
Swen was used to live his simple life, familiar only with his home and his community.
