Descripción

"In Norway as in Norway, the old traditions are slipping away. It's rare today to find farms where everything is done by hand-from the fields to the kitchen. Author Gorlaug Nokland, a Norwegian wife, mother and textile enthusiast, was lucky to learn the old methods of running a household from her maternal grandmother. As a girl, Gunlaug watched her Bestemor Astri card, spin and dye wool, weaving it into fabric. Over the years, Gunlaug learned to prepare foods as her ancestors did. From her parents, Olav and Marta Skuland, she learned the skills needed to manage a dairy farm. Gunlaug's book preserves these nearly forgotten traditions for future generations. She tells the story through through her main character, Mette, who faces modern-day challenges in her new job as a budeie {diary maid} on Siljajern Seter, an old Norwegian mountain dairy-turned museum. There, Mette falls in love, uncovers the truth about an ancient legend, and renews her faith in God." This book has 442 pages. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from the author, Gunlaug Nokland. The text is wrtten in ENGLISH/NORWEGIAN. Overall, this is a FINE copy of this SCARCE title. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 063399
