Meet Karl Oskar, Kristina, Ulrika and all the others who hoped that life would be better in America. That they would avoid starvation, beatings and persecution for their faith. That hope gave them the courage to leave their country, relatives and friends, and to face an unknown future.

The journey across the sea is long and difficult. Many get sick and not everyone gets there. It is exciting and engagingly told, at the same time as it is a piece of Swedish history.

The Emigrants was first published in 1949 and is the first in a series in four parts.

Cecilia Davidsson has written several of her own books for LL-förlaget. She has also adapted a number of classics for easy reading, including The Red Room . Now she has taken on Vilhelm Moberg's Emigrants.
