About This Book

The year is 1868 and Sweden is a barren land of poverty and famine. Carl Erik and his family receive a letter from an uncle in America. The uncle realizes that the Erik family is near the end of their rope, and encourages them to move abroad to make a new life. The family sells all their personal items and begins a long trek across land and sea to America.

Here is a realistic account of the struggles of European immigrants in the 19 th century. This book is a fine supplement to a history class, and a courageous, compelling story for any occasion.
