Selma: Swedish Fortitude on the North Dakota Frontier by Lela Atwood Peterson

Peterson tells the story of her mother's family coming to America. Her grandfather, Johan, came to North Dakota and homesteaded northwest of Minot. His wife, Selma, came the following year. She brought two sons and one daughter (Lela's mother). Selma left behind her little baby and oldest daughter. Little did they know they would never, ever return.

Lele Peterson started intensive research and writing after retiring from teaching. Research took her all over the world to Sweden & Norway, Ellis Island, and county courthouses. She read all the archived newspapers of her mother's homestead from 1904 to 1922, from which she gleaned interesting family tidbits. After rewriting and reediting for 7 years, Selma: Swedish Fortitude on the North Dakota Frontier was published.
