What was the psychological impact of that endless horizon? Did bugs crawl out of the sod house walls? However like the Little House books Giants is silent on the subject of frontier outhousesThis could be subtitled “Manic Depressive on the Prairie” The hero Per Hansa provides the manic side relentlessly optimistic boundlessly energetic canny outgoing His wife Beret is depressed forlorn without her birth family frightened by the limitlessness of the landscape haunted by a sin The ch

    Verdens Grøde ePUB ì ↠ PDF EPUB kdglasscouk verdens kindle, grøde kindle, Verdens Grøde PDFEPUBThere's lots of books about settlers of the American Prairie out there but Rolvaag does one thing remarkably well Read this about 15 years ago but still clearly remember Rolvaag's portrayal of the grueling solitude of early settlers of the northern plain Especially of the wife often left with her children while her husband went for supplies Not unlike a sailor's wife but without the near companionship of other women Rough living uarters coping with illness scarcity of food etc Also remember these were stoic Norwegians The men bear their own hardships and are constantly physically challenged Having been caught in blizzards and whiteouts in my lifetime it was evident that Rolvaag wrote them only as one who has been through them could Frightening then still Some things about nature do not change If you're in the mood for a longish classic I highly recomme
