More About This Book

Overview

This popular proverb book features a new beautiful cover showing a fjord, water falls, and the mountains. David Heusinkveld took the photographs for the covers when on a trip to Scandinavia in 2007. The book has a new cover with identical popular contents. Interior illustrations come from "Rambles and Scrambles in Norway" first published in 1878. The British author took his artist with him to make engravings of life in Norway. These charming antique view show historic Norway has become one of the worlds wealthiest nations. Today a display of the history of Norwegian people proclaims, "We are no longer alone."

Norwegian tales were first written down in the mid-1800s by two friends, Peter Christian Asbjornsen and Jorgen Moe. Joanne Asala has searched through these early stories to find the gems of wisdom-the proverbs-sprinkled throughout the tales. Illustrations are reproductions of nineteenth-century engravings of Norwegian life and scenery.

Some examples of Norwegian Proverbs are:
"Everyone is nearest to his own self."
"Necessity teaches new arts."
"What a man sews he shall reap."
"A home is a home be it ever so homely."
"True love does not grow rusty."
"Silence is sometimes an answer."
"He who follows the river comes at last to the sea."
