Dannebrog on the American Prairie
A Danish Colony Project in the 1870s : Land Purchase and the Beginnings of A TownBook - 2000
In a translation which stays close to the original Danish, this text provides a detailed case study of the history of a group of Danish immigrants in the Midwest. As an introduction, Jeppeson (he appears to be affiliated with the city of Odense, Denmark, perhaps through the museum) offers a general discussion of Danish immigration to the US as background. The history of Danneborg and the life of its founder, Lars Hannibal, are then given in great detail, based on the extensive research Jeppeson carried out in several archives, including the Newberry Library in Chicago and the National Archives in Washington, as well as local archives in Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, and Denmark. Distributed in the US by ISBS. c. Book News Inc.
