The Western Home

A Literary History of Norwegian America

This sweeping overview of Norwegian-American literature goes beyond fiction, poetry, and drama to probe letters, travel accounts, informational emigration aids, and newspapers. The author brings to his work extensive knowledge of the American cultural setting. His clear, jargon-free writing style will be welcomed by scholars and layreaders alike, as he gives the impression of examining literature almost from within, rather than from the vantage point of a literary critic.


"A wide-ranging and authoritative presentation of Norwegian-American literary texts . . . coupled with obvious command of an expansive body of source material." -- Janet E. Rasmussen, Nebraska Wesleyan University
