Colony That Rose from the Sea CB
The development of the Norwegian community in Brooklyn was closely tied to the international maritime trade that developed from the 1850s to 1920. In this first book-length study of the immigrant community originally known as the Red Hook district and later as Little Norway, a Norwegian scholar traces its development and its place in the overall scheme of Norwegian emigration to America.
