KIRKUS REVIEW

When a taconite company moved into the sleepy fishing village at Turtle Bay, Minnesota, on Lake Superior, Bernt Truelsen's father feared that fishing would be ruined. A man affiliated with the company was shot following an offer to buy the Truelsen land and, Bernt felt sure that his father had lost his head and pulled the trigger of his shotgun. A clearly written, three dimensional story about a Norwegian family resisting change and a convincing portrait of a young boy moving painfully to maturity.
