Yours, Andreas: 15 years of letters home


NAHA 2021/001


Description on the back of books reads: "Sometime in the 1980s, a box of old letters was discovered in the attic of a bakery in Levanger, Norway. The collection turned out to be letters written by Andreas Strømsøe from 1892 to 1906 to his parents back home in Levanger. The 80 letters translated in this book give a unique picture of the immigrant experience in New York, North Dakota, and Minnesota, as well as personal views on both events in Norway and America. Enjoy this incredible history from a bygone era!"
