About this Item

STATED FIRST EDITION. Full yellow-green cloth with gilt lettering and design on spine. The cloth is slightly spotted with minimal shelfwear. Jacket is worn through at the very tips of the corners else near new. Decorative endsheets. Overall a VERY GOOD book in a EXCELLENT dust jacket. Ole Edvart Rølvaag (spelled "Rolvaag" in the United States) (April 22, 1876 - November 5, 1931) was a Norwegian-American writer and professor, well known for his writings on the immigrant experience. Rolvaag's authorship and scholarship focused primarily on the pioneer experience on the Dakota plains in the 1870s, particularly among Norwegian immigrants. His most famous book is Giants in the Earth, which is part of a trilogy based upon his experiences as a settler. These novels powerfully and realistically treat the lives and trials of Norwegian pioneers in the Midwest, emphasizing their battles with snow storms, locusts, poverty and hunger. Probably more importantly, the books make vivid the trials of loneliness, separation from family and longing for the old country as well as difficulty fitting into a new culture and estrangement from children who grew up in the new land. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 013530
