This is the fourteenth in a series of volumes in American
social and cultural history that, according to the editor,
"probe into certain aspects of Norwegian immigration to the
United States, Norwegian-American pioneering, immigrant
backgrounds and problems."
This volume contains twelve studies by different authors,
all of which have to do with immigrant experiences or problems,
and which form a valuable record for the children and grand-
children of the early Norwegian settlers in the United States.
All those who are of Norwegian descent should be interested
in this record of their history. A list of recent publications
both in periodicals and books relating to Norwegian-American
history is appended.
The contents of the previous thirteen volumes of the Studies
and Records published by the Norwegian-American Society
are also given at the end of the volume.
