The Promise of America: A History of the Norwegian-American People

$ 24.95

In The Promise of America, historian Odd S. Lovoll tells the story of the thousands of Norwegian immigrants who gambled on a fresh start in the United states. Now, Lovoll has carefully revised this successful book to reflect new understandings of the Norwegian-American past, updating this story to today. Changes for this edition include additional photographs, expanded treatment of the causes of migration, extensive details about the urban Norwegian-American experience, new information about immigrant fiction and reading societies, enriched discussions of Norwegians in the Civil War and the Socialist movement, and more.
