Icelandic River Saga
Fine condition, gift quality, in illustrated pictorial hardcover. 838 pages. 28 cm. More than a local history book in that it deals comprehensively with the history/genealogy of individual families of Icelandic descent in Riverton and area in Manitoba and provides in many cases information on the character and behavior (in life) of individuals as they were known to others in their respective communities. Also a history of 'New Iceland' in North America. The author enriches the family histories of settlers by providing accounts of relatives of the settlers in Iceland plus the places of origin in Iceland of these settlers. The late Professor Haraldur Bessasonm then Head of Icelanndic Studies at the University of Alberta, wrote in the introduction to the book that the author established 'ties between thousands of Icelandic North-Americans and their native Iceland', and has created 'a more meticulous piece of research than any previously undertaken in the fields of Icelandic ethnic history'. Rich in genealogical information. Many photos. Increasingly scarce and sought after. N° de réf. du libraire 36125
