A Community Transplanted
The Trans-Atlantic Experience of a Swedish Immigrant Settlement in the Upper Middle West, 1835–1915
Robert C. Ostergren

Social Demography series

“An exceptional work, meticulously researched and woven together with analytic rigor and attention to the particularities of the subject matter. It is written in a style that combines individual narrative histories with systematic empirical inquiry yielding a work that is intellectually sophisticated and at times lyrical. In short, it should not only be read by students of American immigration, but should serve as a model for future research.”—International Migration Review

Robert C. Ostergren, professor of geography at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, is the coauthor of the Cultural Map of Wisconsin, and coeditor of Wisconsin Land and Life, both published by the University of Wisconsin Press.
