To the Editor:

I would like to compliment The Daily Republic and Sheila Slater on her excellent article about Norwegian novelist Dag Gundersen Storla. It is very special to have the Mitchell area featured in internationally published novels.

I attended Storla's presentation at the Carnegie on Monday evening and it was a very interesting program about the Norwegian American connection and how and why so many Norwegians came to homestead in our area. Storla is not only a great storyteller, but also a physician, musician and missionary. His books are a fascinating mixture of fact and fictional characters on their adventurous journey from poverty to pioneers, led by faith and determination.
