Wonderful collection of immigrant memoirs. It's too bad that it's not read and studied more often these days. It would be a great Lit Unit for kids 5-8th grade who are studying immigration. The surprise ending of the first story says it all about the sacrifices that this immigrant mother made to insure the well-being of her children. You don't have to be from Norwegian stock to imagine your immigrant ancestor doing similar things for her children.
