Proud of Their Heritage and Sustained by Their Faith, They Came to Tame a New Land

She had promised herself that once they left the fjords of Norway, she would not look back. After three long years of scrimping and saving to buy tickets for their passage to America, Roald and Ingeborg Bjorklund, along with their son, Thorliff, finally arrive at the docks of New York City. It was the promise of free land that fed their dream and lured them from their beloved home high above the fjords of Norway in 1880. Together with Roald's brother Carl and his family, they will build a good life in a new land that promises untold wealth and vast farmsteads for their children. As they join the throngs of countless immigrants passing through Castle Garden, they soon discover that nothing is as they had envisioned it. Appalled by the horrid stories of fellow immigrants bilked of all their money and forced to live in squalid living conditions, the Bjorklunds continue their long journey by train as far as Grand Forks. From there a covered wagon takes them into Dakota Territory, where they settle on the banks of the Red River. But there was no way for them to foresee the price they will have to pay to wrest a living from the indomitable land. The virgin prairie refuses to yield its treasure without a struggle. Will they be strong enough to overcome the hardships of that first winter?


Leaving their beloved Norway for the promise of untold prosperity in America, the Bjorklund family settles in Dakota Territory on the banks of the Red River and endures unimagined hardships and trials.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book is meant for the serious reader! 26. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I read this book almost two years ago, but I still remember how much it captured my attention. I think what made the book so interesting is the fact that it didn't create a phony atmosphere. Everything was so real and their problems were so crushing that I think I better understood what a hard life many immigrants went through. I appretiate the spiritual side of the book too. I think it's a great witness when writers use Jesus Christ as a key player in their character's lives. I have also read the next two books in the series and am looking forward to the third. I have a lot more to say of the book, but I'll leave it at this; it's a great book for people interested in history and in love with great reading!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Definately on my top ten list!!! 6. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde
'An untamed land' was one of the best books I have ever read. I would strongly recommend this book to everyone who enjoys good, quality historical fiction. Mrs. Snelling definately has a gift for writing. I have just finished the sequel, 'A new day rising', and I can't wait to read 'A land to call home'. I love the way Mrs. Snelling incorporates the Lord into her books. So many Christian authors today don't bother to write about Jesus Christ,it's refreshing to read a book that centers around Him! Mrs. Snelling, all I can say is, please write more!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulous Christian frontier literature 11. Januar 2000
The grueling life of this Norwegian pioneer family made me so thankful for all the blessings in my modern life. They had so few material possessions, worked so hard, endured such hardships, but yet maintained their faith in God, the most important possession anyone can have. I've read all of the books of this series, but this one stands out above them all.
