Descripción

"Andrew Peterson was an extraordinary person, and yet he never lost the humanity that often marks people of national or even statewide fame and unites them with their own contemporaries, The consistency with which he kept his diary for more than forty-four years is not the mark of an ordinary person. In the everyday affairs of that pioneer community of Scandia, he was a respected leader who never lost the common touch. Steeped in the work ethic, comforted and guided by his religion, and irresistibly moved to contribute to his community, he exemplified the best in the pioneer spirit of his day. In his pioneer work of establishing apple orchards in Minnesota is revealed many of the qualities that marked this man. Persistently and patierntly he sought out, tested, and evaluated apple varieties for cold hardiness and fruit quality. He acquired plant breeding skills, developed new varieties, and actively promoted and disseminated plants to others. He accepted well-deserved accolades with humility and was quick to give others their share of ther credit. The apple industry in Minnesota is in part a legacy of Peterson's early efforts. The message in this accounting of Peterson's life, aside from the historical aspects, is that in quiet ways common men and women do make significant contributions to help build a better society. I comment the author for undertaking this task and for revealing the life of a man whose contributions are woven into the fabric of Minnesota history." {Frances de Vos}. This book has 202 pages and is profusely illustrated. Overall a FINE copy of this VERY SCARCE title. N° de ref. de la librería 060402

Sinopsis:

The story of Andrew Peterson of Scandia, Minnesota, is a wonderful account of the building of our multifaceted country. It is the story of immigrants coming to the wilderness of the Midwest where they carved their lives on the prairies, in the forests and by the lakes, laying the foundations of modern America. The story documents not only the few brave families who settled the small country of Carver, Minnesota, but also the strong ties between Sweden and the new land. It is a story that we Swedish-Americans can take great pride in, because it is our story. Here we find an honest account of the real people based upon the remarkable diary of Andrew Peterson.
