Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored — what is it that speaks to you?
One of the few books that I’ve read more than once is “Giants in the Earth” by O.E. Rolvaag. Originally written in Norwegian in 1927, it’s the story of Norwegians who staked their claim in Dakota Territory around the time that my Norwegian great-grandparents were proving up their claim in the same area. That’s what made the book so interesting to me, it described the harshness and drudgery of pioneer life and gave me an idea of what it might have been like for my great-grandparents when they lived under a sod roof on the North Dakota prairie.
