America Fever: A Norwegian Emigration Story

America Fever: A Norwegian Emigration Story


DVD length: 15 minutes

A young mid-19th-century Norwegian woman packing to move to America fills a food barrel for the long voyage across the North Atlantic and also a trunk for clothes and keepsakes. But the narrator's most prized keepsake takes up no room at all: the songs she sings with her mother and sister as she prepares to leave them, probably forever. 

“One of the most moving treatments of immigration I have ever seen. It is overpowering. The photography is superb”The Practical Historian
