  1. Cleng Peerson is real But The development of the cant hook is probably not as described in the book The book is not terribly racist to Indians, but the bottom line is that the only people you can trust are Norskies And the Norskies are almost as brave and good as Kate Seredy s Hungarians Also, there s a bit about farming than lumbering, so the title is not good And I just didn t learn enough about any of the subject settings, peoples, or cultures Otoh, the pictures are appealing And it s not a [...]


  2. The list of Newbery authors who were nominated for a Pulitzer Prize at some point in their careers is not a long one Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and Esther Forbes each won a Pulitzer, and Walter Havighurst, who teamed up with his wife Marion for Song of the Pines A Story of Norwegian Lumbering in Wisconsin, was nominated I m not sure of every author honored by both Newbery and Pulitzer, and that number could grow, but being mentioned in the same sentence as Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and Esther Forbe [...]


  3. First off, I think this book could do without the subtitle A Story of Norwegian Lumbering in Wisconsin It makes it sound like it s some written documentary about Norwegian Lumbering in Wisconsin It is not Rather, the book is about some Norwegian FARMERS, along with a boy who works as a knife grinder, who immigrate to Wisconsin in the 1830 s or 1840 s to try to work toward better lives for themselves.Anyway, the book is pretty good, and it is pretty interesting The author also does a very good jo [...]


  4. Not one of my favorite Newbery Honor books, but not one of my least favorites, either The subject matter was interesting enough, but the writing style was just not very engaging I ve read better immigrant stories and better woodcutting stories Plenty So read this one if you are a Newberry completist or super interested in Norwegian settlers in Wisconsin, but otherwise, you can probably give it a pass.



  5. Not much to say about this one It won the Newbery Honor learned that Norwegians settled in Wisconsinwhich I knew from the title Long story, not much substance, not particularly memorable The seasons might come and go, the trees might flame scarlet in the sharp frost of autumn or they might be weighted down by the heavy snows of winter but Lisa was always the same, a breath of springtime, no matter what month the days were marshaled into Kristen looked up from the fire She saw the light in her fa [...]


  6. Norwegians settling in northern territories of the USA.See At Home in a New Land by J Sandin for a beginning reader level.


  7. Must be biographical material an interesting but not particularly exciting story of Norwegian emigration to the U.S Midwest.


  8. I feel that this is a VERY idealistic take on immigration It was cute, I was happy everything worked out for everyone but it was all very ideal.
