The story of a young man, Nils, and the Norwegian family who adopts him as one of their own as they travel from their homeland to the U.S. to start a new pioneer life in Wisconsin. Not a bad entry in the genre: nothing earth shattering, but it's an interesting story and well-enough paced.

One of the genial and informative Rivers of America series, this book may give a pleasant bonus for certain readers as it is, -- no big surprise , given regional history -- something of a vest-pocket history of Norwegians in America. I wish regional history were writte like this these days.

Another great history of Cleveland entrepreneurs. It took almost fifty years and enormous investment to create the iron ore industry.
