Not done reading but enjoying the information.

I find this book to be very well written, researched and valuable. It tells the immigrant story with grace and compassion, delving into the motivations, disappointments and successes of the generations. Not only those of Norwegian descent will understand the challenges and victories of immigrant people. It is a book that addresses common fears and the ways the community rises up to overcome adversity. It is worth rereading several times.
