The Viking Immigrants : Icelandic North Americans, Paperback / softback Book

The Viking Immigrants : Icelandic North Americans Paperback / softback

Part of the Studies in Gender and History series


A Viking statue, a coffee pot, a ghost story, and a controversial cake: What can the things that immigrants treasured tell us about their history?

Between 1870 and 1914 almost one-quarter of Iceland's population migrated to North America, forming enclaves in both the United States and Canada.

This book examines the multi-sensory side of the immigrant past through rare photographs, interviews, artefacts, and early recipes.

By revealing the hidden histories behind everyday traditions, The Viking Immigrants maps the transformation of Icelandic North American culture over a century and a half.
