She had promised herself that once they left the fjords of Norway, she would not look back.It was the promise of free land that fed their dream and lured them from their beloved home, high above the fjords of Norway in 1880. As they join the throngs of countless immigrants passing through Castle Gardens, they soon discover that nothing is as they had envisioned it. Appalled by the horrid stories of fellow immigrants bilked of all their money, and forced to live in squalid living conditions, the Bjorklunds continue their long journey by train as far as Grand Forks. From there a covered wagon takes them into Dakota Territory, where they settle on the banks of the Red River. But there was no way for them to foresee the price they will have to pay to wrest a living from the indomitable land. Will they be strong enough to overcome the hardships of that first winter?
