The Letters of Sigurd Gjeldaker Lillehaugen, 
edited by Theresse Nelson Lundby, Kristie Nelson-Neuhaus, and Ann Nordland Wallace. 
In 1885 Sigurd emigrated from Hallingdal, Norway to America with her three children, joined her husband in Minnesota, and in 1888 they homsteaded in Dakota territory. The letters begin in 1892 and end in 1923, as she writes about pioneer life and its seasonal rhythms. Her children and their experiences as they grow and start families of their own fill her letters, and she reveals the cycle of life as the years go by. Family trees and photographs bring additional context to the letter, and throughout she bids her family to “live well”.
