From the earliest accounts of Swedish immigration in Oregon to contemporary essays of the modern immigrant’s experience, there is something here for any reader interested in understanding the process of leaving one’s homeland and starting a new life in America. Whether it was founding Swedish speaking communities, designing, and building bridges and other infrastructure, establishing newspapers and businesses, serving as teachers, nurses, ministers, and elected officials, or gathering in lodges and churches to preserve Swedish culture, Swedes made their mark in Oregon in a variety of fascinating ways.
