  • About the Edition

    From 1825 to 1930 almost three million Scandinavians immigrated to the New World. However, emigration did not extinguish their strong and admirable culture. In fact, Scandinavian immigrants exhibited even more of the unique traits that had long nourished their ancestors and this adherence to their cultural values contributed much to their success in the New World. Scandinavian shores is an illuminating and entertaining book that brings to life the rich cultural history that has survived through generations of Scandinavians and has transcended the distance between the New World and their home countries. When these immigrants stepped ashore in the New World, they had what mattered most: their resourcefulness, work ethic and skilled craftsmanship. These, and other inherent traits, set them apart from the thousands of European immigrants of different descent.

      The Vikings were superb sailors who got as far afield as Russia and North America, but their navigational techniques haven’t always been completely understood, says BBC History Revealed magazine. A mysterious ‘sunstone’, mentioned in a medieval Icelandic saga, was considered mere legend until an opaque crystal, made from Iceland spar, was.   This was the high water mark of Viking Scotland. In the south a new star was rising. Throughout the 9 th and 10 th centuries the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England had toppled like dominoes to the Viking Danes, who established a huge empire centred on York. The Scottish kings took advantage and snatched Lothian from Northumbria.
