The road to riches for the hero of this sweeping historical novel ends up being rockier than he initially expects. Norwegian immigrant Jonas Olsen arrives in late nineteenth-century Minneapolis with little money and less English. He quickly learns to reinvent himself—from laboring in sewer construction to building a successful dry goods business, from losing everything in a banking collapse to settling the Red River Valley.

While an eminently likable character, Jonas can also be ruthless in his ambition to find success in America. The Rise of Jonas Olsen is at once an immigrant novel, business novel, political novel, and a western, offering a rich and panoramic view of Scandinavian immigrant life in the Upper Midwest. Wist combines realism and satire to depict the role Norwegian Americans played in the economic, political, and cultural life of the Upper Midwest. Wist — was a journalist and editor of the Decorah Posten from to Making the United States Home, Nichol is editor of the Norwegian-American Historical Association publication program.

Published in cooperation with the Norwegian-American Historical Association.
