"What people of Swedish birth or ancestry have contributed in the past three hundred years to the development and civilization of America. Each one of the thirty-nine chapters is devoted to a particular field, and has been written by a specialist in that field. This is the first time that the history of the Swedes in this country, and their contributions to American life have been so fully set forth in one volume. This book was published in June 1938 in connection with the celebration of the three-hundredth anniversary of the New Sweden colony founded in 1638 on the Delaware River by settlers from Sweden. Reviews the role of Swedes in the early history and colonization of the U.S., gives a picture of the land from which they came, and lists their contributions to American life in the fields of business, politics, the arts, and science. Facinating look at the immigration and migration of the Swedish people from Sweden to Delaware and later great parts of Minnesota. A history of their country is included trials and tribulations of migrating to America and also a section of the Swedish contribution to American life and famous Americans that have Swedish ancestory such as the founder of Walgreens and Charles Lindbergh."

Harry N. Abrams 1980 0810913658 / 9780810913653 Hardcover in DJ Good Good Quarto. 
This fascinating book examines the origins of the peoples of Northern Europe, as well as the cross-cultures which developed around the North Sea and the Baltic rather than around the Mediterranean. From about A.D. 400 until approximately 1100, the Germans, Anglo-Saxons, Picts, Scots, Irish, Welsh, Scandinavians and Northern Slavs emerged from practical illiteracy and anonymity into a closely-knit and interrelated series of established states, mostly Christian, bearing in their minds and hearts the seeds of great literature and enormous practical achievements. There are 340 illustrations, including 82 full color plates, drawings and maps that are presented in this volume.
