Summary (From the publisher):

The Settlers focuses on Karl Oskar and Kristina as they struggle to prosper on their new farm during the 1850s. Kristina, coping with a feeling of loss for Sweden, and the difficulty of adapting to a new land, draws strength from a newfound spirituality. Karl Oskar brings more land under cultivation and harvests rye, wheat, and corn. Together they survive blizzards, grasshopper plagues, wildcat speculation in currency, and self-righteous neighbors. With friends they rejoice in the arrive of more Swedes, building a church, moving into their new house, even planting a small flower garden. Karl Oskar's bother, Robert, falls victim to gold fever and with his friend Arvid faces an arduous journey on the California Trail.
