“The historian will tell you what happened. The novelist will tell you what it felt like,” - E.L. Doctorow

I’m starting to think Wilhelm Moberg was more historian than novelist. I’m moderately enjoying his Emigrants saga, but Rolvaag did the Scandinavian-immigrants-on-the-Great-Plains thing so much better. I’m debating whether or not to skip the last two Emigrants books.
