Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0809312042, Hardcover)

The more than 1,000 Swedish-American place-names found by Otto Robert Landelius provide hard evidence of a dis­tinct Swedish flavor permeating the map of North America.

 

The combined aim of the author, the translator, and the editor has been to identify and document as comprehen­sively as possible those place-names in the United States and Canada that di­rectly or indirectly originate from place-names in Sweden, from Swedish people, or from Swedish culture. Landelius re­corded not only the place-name and its location but also supplied information concerning the development of various places and persons connected with them. The result is a generous sampling of Swedish cultural history on North American soil.
