From Fjord to Floathouse: One Family's Journey from the Farmlands of Norway to the Coast of British Columbia
by Myrtle Rae Siebert
About the book:
In 1898 Vancouver, British Columbia, the flip of a coin sends one young man to the Klondike gold rush and leaves immigrant Andy Forberg to carve a living from trees growing along the remote coastline of British Columbia.
One hundred years later his granddaughter, driven by a need to explore her family heritage, experiences a heart-warming welcome at the farm he left so long ago.
In short time segments, complete with maps, letters, photographs and recipes, readers are drawn into a rural lifestyle that only a few have experienced, or even been aware existed.
This popular book was updated and reprinted as a Ten Year Anniversary Edition, expanded to include an additional final chapter.
