Now I don't want to rock any more'

not on land and not at sea.

We'll be home soon.



What if it had been my oxen.

-Aren't we there yet?

-Just a little bit further.

You didn't consult me before

you took a place this far away.

-Are the rocks hot?

-Yes' a little.

No' let's continue.

They might hurt us if they see us.

Anders claims the savages

aren't that aggressive.

You couldn't come' Kristina'

so I had to make the choice on my own.

-I have claimed the best land in North-America

-It's just so far away.

To a place like this' no road could be too long

Don't think I will just accept anything you do.

-Just trust me' Kristina.

-You never ask anyone's advice.

I ask your advice sometimes' don't I?

Maybe sometimes.

But you do whatever you want regardless.

At lest the soil is easy to till here

It's a nice place you've got here' Karl Oskar.

Do you see over there?

Can you see the 'shanty' up there.

It's only a little 'shanty'.

But it will have to house us

until we can get the house ready at least.

We'll have to start as peasants'-

-even if we have more' and better'

land than any of the big farmers at home.

Look at this' Kristina.

Have you seen anything like it? And it's just

as deep throughout. We'll grow good bread here.


-Karl Oskar?


We have to buy a cow'

so we'll have milk for the winter.

I should have told you sooner.

We have nothing to buy a cow for.

Nothing? Are we that badly off?

Everything is so unconscionably expensive. And I

haven't bought anything we didn't strictly need.

Surely a cow is just as necessary

as anything else?

Not as necessary as the house.

But the whole winter. . . do you think the children

will survive till spring without milk?

Is there no way' do you think?

How can we buy anything without money?

-Is that the winter coming already?

-It can't come that suddenly.

Will you get the house ready in time?

Next time I will build bigger.

And shave the timber on both sides.

Here we go!

One' two' three. . .now!

What on earth. . . !

Did you find a wild cow on the way?

You can borrow Lady over the winter.

We only need one cow.

The cow is old' of course.

But she is fat' and she has plenty of milk.

-Now she's stuck.

-Are you stuck?

It's your fault' Karl Oskar.

You've cut it too narrow for a grown woman.

You should know women have wider hips than men.

God made us to lie on our backs-

-whilst we carry out his commandment

to populate the world.

Ulrika can certainly make porridge.

That's the kind of woman one should have.

-You already have a woman.

-The Indian woman couldn't cook for pigs.

She's only good in bed.

She's a bit small down there'

but all the Indian girls are petite.

Yeah' I'll drink to that. Cheers!

The American liquor are good and strong'

but they look like cows piss.

Come over here and give me a hand.

-Can you keep a secret' Arvid?

-My lips are sealed' you know that.

-I'm getting out of here as soon a possible.

-Are you leaving your brother?

Karl Oskar isn't in charge of me.

I'm going to look for gold.

-You never said anything about this.

-Such things must be kept secret.

But I wasn't planning on going on my own'

I was hoping you would come with me.

Will you?

-We don't have to cross any oceans' do we?

-No. Come on.

Hey there' troubadours' not bad.

strumming both back and forth

Gusten's jaw is chewing the rhythm

Janne squeezing with might and sound

Your favourite harmonica

sounds more like a horse in heat

Lena' you soar like the bird in the sky

Vilhelm Moberg

Karl Artur Vilhelm Moberg (20 August 1898 – 8 August 1973) was a Swedish journalist, author, playwright, historian, and debater. His literary career, spanning more than 45 years, is associated with his series The Emigrants. The four books, published between 1949 and 1959, deal with the Swedish emigration to the United States in the 19th century, and are the subject of two movie adaptations and a musical. Among other works are Raskens (1927) and Ride This Night (1941), a historical novel of a 17th-century rebellion in Småland acknowledged for its subliminal but widely recognised criticism against the Hitler regime. A noted public intellectual and debater in Sweden, he was noted for very vocal criticism of the Swedish monarchy (most notably after the Haijby affair), likening it with a servile government by divine mandate, and publicly supporting its replacement with a Swiss-style confederal republic. He spoke out aggressively against the policies of Nazi Germany, the Greek military junta, and the Soviet Union, and his works were among those destroyed in Nazi book burnings. In 1971, he scolded Prime Minister Olof Palme for refusing to offer the Nobel Prize in Literature to its recipient Alexander Solzhenitsyn – who was refused permission to attend the ceremony in Stockholm – through the Swedish embassy in Moscow. Moberg's suicide by self-inflicted drowning also drew much attention. He had had a long struggle with depression and writer's block. more…
