BRAND NEW Softcover - Index - 602 pp - This exhaustive work covers the geography, history and people of Norway and the various stages of Norwegian immigration to America. It also discusses education, religion, social and political aspects, industry, language and culture. Scores of maps and tables illustrate immigration statistics and compare Norwegian movement and settlement to that of other groups, including the English, Celts, Dutch, French, Germans, Swedes, Danes, Icelanders, Finns and others. Numerous photographs of prominent Norwegian Americans, as well as churches and educational institutions make this work a monument to the enterprising spirit of Norwegian pioneers to the New World. The Norwegians have been in America since 876 A.D. A large part of the book concerns the period from 1825 to 1860, when much of the Norwegian immigration took place.
