Pretty Much 100% Scandinavian Saga #3 DVD
from Camera Q Productions.
Saga 3: “Give me enough Swedes, snuff, and whiskey, and I’ll build a railroad to hell!” Great Northern Railway tycoon James J. Hill is said to have boasted admiringly of his immigrant workers. Danes, Finns, Icelanders, Norwegians, and Swedes—all earned reputations for good, hard work while settling into the United States. Swedish filmmaker Stefan Quinth and Dr. William Beyer's interviews, historical photos, and footage of contemporary Scandinavian Americans at work show why the reputation has been rightly earned. Here you’ll hear the sounds, see the sights, and smile at the sly humor of Scandinavian Americans farming, logging, milling, commercial fishing, doing domestic work, and following religious vocations. You can relax: these people are working enough for both of you! Length: 60 minutes, 2012.
