Anmeldelser

«Illuminating... Insightful knowledge of Norway's cultural and social history'»

TLS

«Ferguson takes us on an uncompromising journey into the dark cold north, to reveal the warmth that comes from deep community bonds – qualities all too often lost in our modern urban lives»

Tim Ecott

«Singular and captivating: the pursuit of a dream»

Professor John Carey

«PRAISE FOR ROBERT FERGUSON: 'Scandinavians is a terrific read... [It] reads like many 19th-century travel books, which also combined wonderful narrative description with bright speculation... It's this approach that makes the book so thoroughly enjoyable' Literary Review. 'Ferguson stretches wide the fabric of history, his knowledge and insights in the process bringing the varied stories of the Nordic people vividly to life' Irish Times. 'Charming, affectionate... Penetrating'»

David Aaronovitch, The Times
