Rolvaag gives a stirring account of the Norwegian Midwest, but he also gives an in-depth perusal into the minds and hearts of the people who settled it. He writes of a lifestyle and of motivations unimaginable to the modern American, and yet, he writes of a time that was shockingly recent in the history of the Midwest. I would strongly recommend this textbook to anyone looking for an absolutely unbiased portrayal of pioneer life. It will inspire you.
