New Land, New Lives

Scandinavian Immigrants to the Pacific Northwest

New Land, New Lives captures the voices of Scandinavian men and women who crossed the Atlantic during the early decades of the 20th century and settled in the Pacific Northwest. Based on oral history interviews with 45 Danes, Finns, Icelanders, Norwegians, and Swedes—more than half of them women—the book is illustrated with family photographs and also includes background information on Scandinavian culture and immigration.

Reviews

"Rasmussen's selections capture the textures and tones of ordinary life. They show how the cultures the immigrants had known in the Old World influenced their reaction to the New World and the way they influenced life in the Pacific Northwest. As Rasmussen notes, the stories 'affirm human experience as the stuff of which the fabric of history and culture is woven.' This is a fascinating book."—Murray Morgan, Tacoma News Tribune
