Publisher's Description

She had promised herself that once they left the fjords of Norway, she would never look back.
The promise of free land lures Roald and Ingeborg Bjorklund from their beloved home high above the fjords of Norway, and after three long years of scrimping and saving to buy tickets for their passage to America, they finally arrive at the docks of New York City. This new land promises a rich heritage for their children, and here they hope to build a good life.

After a long journey by train and then by covered wagon, the Bjorklunds finally arrive in Dakota Territory, where they settle on the banks of the Red River of the North. But the virgin prairie refuses to yield its treasure without a struggle. Will Roald and Ingeborg be strong enough to overcome the hardships of that first winter?

Proud of their heritage and sustained by their faith, they came to tame a new land.

    I was a little uncertain as to whether or not I would enjoy this series but decided to give it a try. I appreciate the way the writer includes scripture and life lessons even in the smallest ways but the message is still there and comes through. I would and have recommended this series to others. I also pass the books on once I have read them.

    This review was written for Untamed Land, An - eBook.
    I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. I'm reading the series on the recommendation - and loan - from a friend. But wow... I didn't expect the grittiness within these pages.

    The raw emotions, the struggles, the realities of life with no sugar coating to glaze them over. This is powerful reading. It's the type of book where you want to have the next one in the series sitting next to you when you finish the one you're reading. This isn't a simple "happily ever after" type of story. It more real than that.

    I highly recommend this book to people who like historical fiction, well researched and true to its time period. Set in North Dakota in the 1880s, Lauraine Snelling paints a picture of hardship, sacrifice, and triumph over the untamed prairie. But it's not without cost.

    Ingeborg Bjorklund immigrates from Norway with her husband, his son, his brother and sister-in-law. They make their way to the plains of North Dakota and find a land that will work as hard to break them as they work to tame the land.

    Got this free ebook and I am hooked. Since then bought the rest of this series and plan to get the next series continuing the legacy. Books are filled with hardship, triumph and God's unfailing love as the immigrants make a life in the Dakota territories. Author brings each character to life with their own personalities, struggles, and accomplishments. Can't say enough good about this book.

    This book tells of the struggles and heartbreaks that the immigrants who came to the US had. It is very touching how everyone works together to better themselves and their families.
