Comments  Summary  Contents  Author Notes

Summary: With over 1.3 million Swedish Americans in residence, it is no surprise that the United States has a wealth of landmarks that pay homage to the Swedish people and culture. Touring Swedish America details the locations, histories, and stories behind more than 1,000 such places, including the charming Holy Trinity Church, built in stone and brick in Wilmington, Delaware; the rustic S. M. Swenson log cabin in Austin, Texas; the water tower in the form of a rosemaled coffee cup in Stanton, Iowa; and actress Ann-Margaret's handprints outside the Mann Chinese Theater in West Hollywood, California. nbsp; Published in conjunction with the Swedish Council of America, Touring Swedish America is the comprehensive guide to historic towns, homes, and churches erected during the mass Swedish migration beginning in 1840s, as well as the art, architecture, schools, hospitals, businesses, museums, and gardens still in use today.nbsp; Organized by state and featuring easy-to-use appendixes that outline sites on the National Register of Historic Places, this comprehensive guide with handy regional maps is the perfect tool for all travelers on the hunt for slices of their Swedish past.
