Het wrede paradijs

This book is gorgeous. The author tells the stories of tens of immigrants from Friesland to America, Australia, Africa and combines interviews with them with visits to their hometowns in Friesland. The author is a gifted writer who in beautiful prose describes human tragedy and success.

This was a gift for my birthday from my parents.

De verhalen zijn boeiend. De emigranten hebben uiteenlopende en soms emotionele verhalen over hun motivatie, de reis en de struggle for life in het nieuwe vaderland.
