      Leaving Norway in 1896, settling in Clarksfield, S.D this young pioneer writes letters home to his father and brother I really enjoyed his novel Giants in the Earth, a great classic and this collection of letters gave a voice to his early years in America.

    3. Linda says:
      The author, Ole Rolvaag, was the fictitious Per Smevik And the memoir, THE THIRD LIFE OF PER SMEVIK, felt like a conversation with himself At times fascinating, it was a one sided connection to a time and place few of us would ever know From his early life living with his family just below the Arctic Circle to the tribute of the Norwegian immigrant experience, his third life refers to the time when he finally settled in America.Seventeen pages were devoted to an introduction or explanation of Ol [...]

      This is a touching, very personal account of a man who immigrated from his home in Norway to the Dakota Territory during the 19th century The author lends his own experiences to the storyline which exploit an honesty which I have not encountered before in similar books It opened my eyes to the realization of how extraordinarily hard it must have been to leave literally everything behind in order to come to this country Here is a little sampling of my favorite paragraph And quite unnoticed, Norwa [...]

      This book, in the form of one sided letters all FROM Per Smevik sets a nice tone for the Norwegian immigrant in the mid to late 1800 s His letters are written either to his father, or his brother.Although one sided, we get a good sense of what the family thinks of this man s journey to America what they like and what they didn t like about his being here.I expected this to be a bit dry, but found the style very conversational and easy to read At only 136 pages, it moves quickly.I recommend this [...]

      Let s all just accept my adoration of O.E Rolvaag It s so ironic to read the most quintessential of American stories, that of the immigrant, written in Norwegian and translated to English I love Rolvaag s sensitive and timeless examination of culture shock, longing, homesickness and adjusting expectations I feel this book could be written today by a Guatemalan or a Vietnamese newly arrived in the U.S So poignant, so elegant, and completely on par with the Giants in the Earth masterwork.
