Descripción

"In the first two years of the 20th Century two young people left Scandinavia to become Americans. One left Sweden, somewhat at odds with his family. One left Norway together with her family. One was aged 18, the other was 16. Like most immigrants, each of them immediately found work and established independent lives. He lived in an immigrant boarding house and she became a housemaid and cook. Then they met, courted, married and together began to raise a family. Their life together for over a decade was almost idyllic, that of a craftsman's family in the town of Red Wing, Minnesota. Then, with their five children, they undertook the hard and finacially {SIC} precarious life of a small farm as the great Depression began. Finally, after another decade and a half in the midst of World War Two, they returned to Red Wing and resumed the life of a middle class craftsman's family. And then, after three short years, he died. She carried on for another eleven years. They left the lessons of their faith-filled lives as the heritage of their 29 descendants. Their story is recounted from the memories of their two surviving children, with assistance of infromants {SIC} in Norway and Sweden." This book has 180 pages and is illustratewd throughout. Overall, this is a FINE copy of this SCARCE title. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 065726
