Book description
Steinkjer, an old-world town nestled below rolling hills algonside the Norwegian fjord, sheltered a high-spirited child named Ragna Dahl. When Hitler's Germany invaded Norwary in May 1940, Ragna fled the Nazis on skies, crossing a dangerous mountain pass to reach Steinkjer. She found it bombed beyond recognition. Childhood memories, marked by Midsummer's Night celebrations, ski escapades and alpine summers hearding goats, exploded with Nazi bombs.
From a meager life of porridge suppers, wooden clogs and milking cows in Steinkjer, Ragna Dahl sailed her way to fashionable London, Hemingway's Paris and travel in 1920's Nice, Cannes, Monte Carlo. After death snatched her bridgroom in Paris and nearly took a baby daughter in Oslo, she experienced a spiritual revolution that energized over five decates fo witnessing the Bible.
A legend to thousands in Norway, this vital, loving lady left her native land. Transplated to Colorado, she won ski race medals through her 70s. Ragna's own story, warm, funny yet gripped by tragedy, make rich reading.
