Hometown Folks - A Finnish-American Saga by Gerald F. Carlson.  1997; 168 pages.

Hometown Folks follows the Carlson family from the paternal grandparents (1850s) through the present.  Family records, photos, and oral storytelling provide and insight in raising a family of fourteen children.  The writing gives a view of the struggles of settling in the swamps and bogs of northern Minnesota and surviving cold, snow, and long winters.  It traces the family's growth through prohibition and Depression years, recalling many humorous incidents.  This Finnish family history gives a feeling for life - good and bad - in a harsh country and in difficult times.
