The Story of A Norwegian Immigrant Family in Dakota

Author Aagot Raaen

Minnesota Historical Society Press (May 15, 1994)


This is an engaging, richly detailed biography of a family of Norwegian immigrant homesteaders in eastern North Dakota in the late 1800s. Educator and world traveler Aagot Raaen wrote this reminiscence late in her life. Like Giants in the Earth and Old Jules, Grass of the Earth deals frankly with a darker side of pioneer life on the prairie.
