MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a treasure of a book! Reading it is like going through an old photograph album with a born storyteller at your side to bring each faded, old-fashioned picture to life... No Norwegian-American should miss it." "Minnesota History""


"This plain tale of folks who are the salt of Wisconsin earth is source stuff for an answer to the question always with us: Where do Americans come from?" "New York Herald Tribune""


"Only a few times in my life have I come across such a remarkable personal story as this...It has all this everyday personal human touch and great historical meaning and value too...without any artifices or tricks of the writing trade, it achieves real literary stature." "Decorah Public Opinion""


"A moving story...choice reading both as a treasury of early Wisconsin lore and as an authentic account of how one immigran family met and conquered the problems of the new world." "Sheboygan Press""


"[It] reaches back into Norwegian life as well as telling of pioneer days here. It does this with unusual color, warmth, and vividness of detail...the picture of pioneer life here is vividly real. The stories of the farmer, the woodsman, the preacher, the home-makers, are in a way the stories of the ancestors of every one of us, immigrants and all...[A] classic American chronicle." "New York Times Book Review""
