Limited Supply Available (6 copies left)
Vilhelm Moberg’s four-volume emigrant novels have been reissued in conjunction with the 150th anniversary of the beginning of Swedish mass immigration to North America.
This volume focuses on Karl Oskar and Kristina Nilsson as they struggle on their new farm in Minnesota during the 1850s. Kristina, who misses Sweden and has difficulty adapting to a new land, draws strength from a newfound spirituality. Karl brings more land under cultivation and harvests rye, wheat, and corn.
Together they survive blizzards, grasshopper plagues, currency speculation, and self-righteous neighbors. With friends, they rejoice in the arrival of more Swedes and build a church, move into a new house, and plant a small flower garden.
