Scandinavians: In Search of the Soul of the North

Scandinavians: In Search of the Soul of the North

A journey of discovery though two millennia of Scandinavia’s history, culture and society, "told with deep knowledge and an intoxicating passion" (BBC).Scandinavia is the epitome of cool: we fill our homes with Nordic furniture; we envy their humane social welfare system and their healthy outdoor lifestyle; we glut ourselves on their crime fiction; even their strangely attractive melancholia seems to express a stoic, commonsensical acceptance of life’s vicissitudes. But how valid is this outsider’s view of Scandinavia, and how accurate our picture of life in Scandinavia today?Scandinavians follows a chronological progression across the Northern centuries: the Vendel era of Swedish prehistory; the age of the Vikings; the Christian conversions of Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Iceland; the unified Scandinavian state of the late Middle Ages; the sea-change of the Reformation; the kingdom of Denmark-Norway; King Gustav Adolphus and the age of Sweden’s greatness; the cultural golden age of Ibsen, Strindberg and Munch; the impact of the Second World War; Scandinavia’s postwar social democratic nirvana; and the terror attacks of Anders Behring Breivik.Scandinavians is also a personal investigation, with award-winning author Robert Ferguson as the ideal companion as he explores wi...

THE SHIPS THAT BUILT THE WEST: The Scandinavian Navy, Wapama and Værdalen

THE SHIPS THAT BUILT THE WEST: The Scandinavian Navy, Wapama and Værdalen

Olaf Engvig has a graduate degree in maritime history, and is an expert on Scandinavian ships and their building materials (iron, wood and steel). Born in Norway, he now resides in California. This book results from Mr. Engvig's affection for historic ships and boats, the U.S. Pacific Coast, and his Scandinavian roots. Explore with him how the so-called Scandinavian Navy's lumber schooners and seamen were instrumental in developing the United States' western frontier by providing lumber to build cities. He passionately tells the varied and unique stories of the restoration and preservation of the Wapama, and his personal drama over decades of saving the Værdalen. The book also discusses the use of iron in ship building. This book includes 115 color or black & white images, most of them not previously published.
