Den okända släkten kallar Vilhelm Moberg de svenskar som är bosatta i Nordamerika - ättlingar till de emigranter som under 1800-talet begav sig ut på den farliga och ovissa färden till det stora landet i väster. Här redovisar han nu en del av det väldiga material som hans stora epos Utvandrarserien bygger på. Han berättar om hur svensk-amerikenarna mer och mer vuxit in i det amerikanska samhället och hur amerikalegenden skapades i Sverige. Han skildrar några av pionjärernas märkliga livsöden. Han låter oss ta del av farmaren Andrew Petersons jättelika, unika dagbok. Han för oss till undangömda kyrkogårdar i Mellanvästern. Och mycket annat som allt ger oss en detaljrik och fängslande bild av det stora drama som den svenska amerikaemigrationen var. Den okända släkten gavs ut första gången 1950. [Elib]

The brides of midsummer by Vilhelm Moberg( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For centuries, people have celebrated every Midsummer's Eve at an ancient spring near a small Swedish village. On that special night, when unmarried men and women dance and some unusual activities are permitted, the Bridal Spring has special powers. Vilhelm Moberg introduces four musicians on the last day that each one will ever know: a curmudgeonly fiddler from the 1930s, a sad and conscientious key-harp player from the plague era of 1711, a ne'er-do-well who plays the flute in 1545, and a goat-horn blower from prehistoric times who, like the others, only seeks happiness with a woman. Binding their stories together is the voice of the Bridal Spring itself, tart and grudgingly compassionate--and slow to reveal its secret

45 editions published between 1939 and 1975 in Swedish and Undetermined and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nu kom någon från andra hållet med raska steg. Pappa! Pappa, som varit på dagsverke hos Eskilssons, kom hem igen. Och Kajsa hoppade fram på vägen och ilade emot honom. Knut Toring tog emot dottern med ett litet grepp i hennes öra som om han velat känna efter om det satt lika fast som vanligt. Kajsa skrattade. Pappa brukade ta emot henne på det sättet. Han var barnslig på många sätt, pappa, men hon låtsades sällan om det."Medan världen kapprustar inför ett andra världskrig lämnar Knut Toring och hans familj Stockholm för att återvända till Småland. Men torparlivet i sin barndoms by Lidalycke motsvarar inte de förväntningar han skapat under sin tid i huvudstaden, och omställningen från arbetet på veckotidningen blir komplicerad. Med hjälp av Betty, en självständig och bestämd kvinna, gör han upp planer för att modernisera bygdens lantbruk - till de äldre böndernas förtret. Snart märks också konsekvenserna av Europas förberedelser inför krig även i djupaste Småland. Vilhelm Moberg, 1898-1973, är en av Sveriges mest folkkära författare. Giv oss jorden! utkom för första gången 1939 och är den tredje delen i romansviten om Knut Toring. De två första romanerna i trilogin är Sänkt sedebetyg (1935) och Sömnlös (1937). [Elib]
