A Swedish family comes to Red Wing Minnesota in 1857 and settles in. Excellent period detail and sympathetic characters. Judson has an odd habit of referring to "the mother" or "the father" where I'm used to reading Mother or Father, but it felt to me like that little quirk reinforced the foreignness of the Swedes. Reasonably even-handed portrait of native Americans with one slightly hysterical passage. The worst part? The blurb on the endpaper gave away a plot point from the very end of the book. So don't read the blurb. Recommended for all the Betsy-Tacy fans. ( )
