9780803258310: Take All to Nebraska

The Bison Book edition brings back into print the first of the novels comprising Sophus Keith Winter's Grimsen trilogy. The author was "born in Denmark and was brought to the United States at the age of two. Following in a large sense the history of his own family, he has put together a sensitive record of human relationships in his account of how Peter Grimsen, his wife Meta, and his sons adapt themselves to life in an unfamiliar land. Fine as they are as a human story, the three novels, Take All to Nebraska (1936), Mortgage Your Heart (1937), and This Passion Never Dies (1938), possess also an enduring significance as a case history illustrating the economic conditions of the period. . . .

Review:

""Take All to Nebraska" pictures the struggles of the Grimsens with their half grown children to establish themselves on a rented farm in Nebraska after three hopeless years in Massachusetts. The rich prairie soil seems to offer the farmer a surer road to wealth. The processes whereby the wealth he produces will be diverted to others are not obvious at first, but gradually he discovers how subtly he is ensnared. And yet it is still possible for Peter and Meta to think of returning to the old country and the life they have known, but they conquer both their cultural nostalgia and the hazards of uncertain crops. When the book ends, Peter has decided to take out naturalization papers. Nebraska owns him."--George F. Whicher, "Forum"
