The Scandinavian American Family Album
Name: The Scandinavian American Family Album
Product Code: BC22
Description:Item Number: BC22 
Product Detail:The Scandinavian American Family Album documents the lives of generations of Scandinavian immigrants through their own diaries, letters, interviews, rare photographs, and songs. We are treated to firsthand accounts of the hardships, challenges, and triumphs that awaited the waves of Scandinavians who made their way across the ocean to start new lives in America. We learn about their day-to-day life in the “old world,” the factors that contributed to their decisions to leave, and the challenges of settling into unfamiliar homes, jobs, and habits in America.

Dorothy and Thomas Hobbler spotlight the distinguished contributions of many Scandinavians to American life and culture, including the work of Jacob Riis, the founder of modern photojournalism, economist Thorstein Veblen, actress Candice Bergen, and aviator Charles Lindbergh. The stories and memories contained in this album make this volume a valuable window into the history of Scandinavian Americans.
