Take all to Nebraska
The Bison Book edition brings back into print the first of the novels comprising Sophus Keith Winter's Grimsen trilogy. The author was "born in Denmark and was brought to the United States at the age of two. Following in a large sense the history of his own family, he has put together a sensitive record of human relationships in his account of how Peter Grimsen, his wife Meta, and his sons adapt themselves to life in an unfamiliar land. Fine as they are as a human story, the three novels, Take All to Nebraska (1936), Mortgage Your Heart (1937), and This Passion Never Dies (1938), possess also an enduring significance as a case history illustrating the economic conditions of the period. . . .
