Overview

These nine short stories are written by well-known authors such as W. D. Valgardson, Martha Brooks, David Arnason, Kristjana Gunnars and Betty Jane Wylie. The collection showcases the work of the prairie Icelandic community and is wide-ranging, contemporary, and highly entertaining. The fictions are sometimes comic and sometimes melancholy, in the best tradition of a “round of storytelling. ” Gunnars’ introduction raises questions about the function of fiction and the issues of ethnic writing.
