Synopsis: Leaving their drought-stricken farm in nineteenth-century Sweden behind them, Klara and her family set sail for America, embarking on a dangerous and exciting journey across the ocean.

From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 4-- A heartfelt and totally believable picture-book re-creation of 19th-century immigration as seen through the eyes of a young Swedish girl. With their crops dying and little hope for the future, Klara and her parents leave their homeland for the uncertainty of life in America. After a difficult journey, they arrive in Minnesota, build a cabin, and begin farming the new land. During the winter, Klara's father writes a letter home and Klara encloses a flower that bloomed from seeds her grandfather had given her as a parting gift. Influenced by the letters and diaries of Scandinavian immigrants, Winter keeps the language simple and direct. The situations depicted are ones that will have an impact on a child: preparing food for the journey, the lack of fresh water on board ship, and the appearance of a bird when the ship nears America. Perfectly complementing the text are Winter's arresting full-page illustrations. Executed in what appears to be gouache, the stylized paintings possess a refreshing folk-art quality in which details such as leaves, grass, and waves are handled as repetitive patterns rather than as individual elements. Drawing upon a palette of intense blues, magenta, and lush greens, the artist uses color in a way similar to silk-screened poster art. Equally suited for group sharing or independent reading, this book brings to life an important part of America's history. With Winter's accomplished paintings and accessible story, it's a welcome addition to library shelves. --Denise Anton Wright, Illinois State University, Normal
