A Scandinavian Woman’s Tale of Life on the Prairie
Book 1, Historical Diary 1868-1888

Read the endearing account of Kajsa Swenson Runneberg, who recounts how she and her family built up the farm on the unsettled prairie.

“Go back to a time when there are no streets, roads or cars. Imagine there are no buildings, homes, hospitals or grocery  stores around the corner.  All of our family’s belongings fit in a small wooden wagon. The year is 1868. There is nothing but tall, green waving grass as far as the eye can see. The scent of warm spring air after a morning rain surrounds you. Spring blows gently in your face. The snort of the horse and an occasional meadowlark, whistling its call, are the only sounds. You are along on the virgin land of the vast prairie.”- opening paragraph of Butter in the Well.
