Summary (From the publisher):

The Emigrants introduces Karl Oskar and Kristina Nilsson, their three young children, and eleven others who make up a resolute party of Swedes fleeing the poverty, religious persecution, and social oppression of Småland. The Nilssons leave a farm too small and stony to support them. Kristina's uncle Danjel Andreasson seeks religious freedom for himself, his wife and four children. Ulrika of Västergöhl, once the town whore, is determined to live with her daughter where no one knows her past. Karl Oskar's brother, Robert, travels with his friend Arvid Petterson to escape their lot as farmhands. And Jonas Petter Albrektsson decides to desert his shrewish wife. For ten long weeks they suffer the cramped, filthy quarters of the sailing vessel that finally brings them to New York City.
