Growing up with Swedish and Norwegian grandparents with a dash of Danish thrown in, Eric Dregni thought Scandinavians were perfectly normal. Only later did it dawn on him that perhaps they were a little different. What does it mean to grow up Scandinavian-American? In Vikings in the Attic, Dregni tracks down and explores the significant - and quite often bizarre - historic sites, tales, and traditions of Scandinavian's peculiar colony in the Midwest. Hard cover, 289 pages.
