IMMIGRANT LITTER II: The Emigrants & Unto a Good Land (‘Utvandrarna’ & ‘Invandrarna’) by Vilhelm Moberg 1949, 1952
This pair of immigrant novels tell of the hardships (poverty, religious persecution, and social oppression) felt by the people in Småland, Sweden during the 1840-50s. Eventually, the main characters in these novels, as named in this litter, make the harrowing journey across the Atlantic, first to New York City and eventually to Chisago County in Minnesota, USA. Minnesota continues to have the highest percentage of Swedish Americans in the United States.
