Summary (From the publisher):

Unto a Good Land opens in the summer of 1850 as the sailing ship Charlotta unloads its human cargo - including Karl Oskar and Kristina Nilsson, their children, and a party of other Swedish emigrants from Småland - in New York City. Their journey to a new home in the Minnesota Territory takes them by river boat, steam wagon, Great Lakes steamship, and ox cart to Chicago County. There Karl Oskar and Kristina claim 160 acres and begin farming. It is a year of struggle, but the kindness of their newfound friends - both American and Swedish - helps temper the difficulties wrought by little cash, scant knowledge of English, and late-summer planting.
