Peer O Stromme
First published a serial novel in a Norwegian language newspaper edited by Peer O. Stromme, HALVOR has delighted readers in the Norwegian-American community for many years, both in the Norwegian language original version and in several English translations. This newest edition offers present-day readers a precious glimpse into a past that is all too easily forgotten. Laced with sly humor and gentle satire, Stromme's novel is his fictionalized autobiography, telling of his log cabin childhood in a pioneer settlement in Wisconsin and his adolescent years at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. Finally, after attending a theological seminary in St. Louis, Missouri, Halvor was ordained as a Lutheran pastor and claimed the lovely Nora as his bride.
