A real masterpiece! What an accurate portrayal of the lives of the poor, many of them our ancestors, who strove for a better life in America. The two films together create the stories of realistic believable lives. A bit slow at times....like life was then, but so rewarding.

So happy the library has purchased these DVDs. I have the books the movies were based on. There are 5 of them: The Emigrants, A Time on Earth, Unto a Good Land, The Settlers, and Last Letter Home.
All written by Vilhelm Moberg.
