A detailed portrait of Swedish immigrant life and culture in the Twin Cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, told in 22 essays by leading scholars from the US and Sweden. Includes contributions from twenty-four leading scholars in both the United States and Sweden investigating various facets of Swedish life and culture in the Twin Cities. For these immigrants, many of whom had been farmers in the old country, the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul were truly an urban frontier. The first-ever collection of essays on the subject, this book enhances our understanding of the immigrant experience in Minneapolis and St. Paul while also making an important contribution to the broader history of Swedish immigration to the United States.
