Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0930697030, Paperback)

The letters contained in A Frame But No Picture, spanning the years of 1886 through 1894, are a compelling account of a family. They are a testament to the fortitude and faith of not only the immigrants themselves but also to those who stayed in Denmark. Running as a leitmotif throughout is the story of Mads Adolf, an endearing little fellow, who was left behind in Denmark when his parents emigrated to America. Adolf's story is both memorable and enduring. If only there were a picture of him to fit the frame.
