"Shipping and Culture" is a beautiful coffe-table book with numerous illustrations, many in color. The book highlights cultural activities of Scandinavians in Northern California in the Twentieth Century. It includes chapters on the Panama Pacific and Golden Gate international expositions of 1915 and 1939, the Olympic Games in Squaw Valley in 1960, the Windjammer, and Roald Amundsen's sailing vessel "The Gjoa". This book is "a must" for all Scandinavian-Americans. Excellent gift for family and friends in Scandinavia and the US.
