Item description for Inger! A Modern-Day Viking Discovers America by James N. Sites...
"Inger's hands-across-the-sea activities struck me as further testament to the unusual role she had long played as an unofficial, unheralded goodwill ambassador for Norway in the United States, and vice versa. This extends far beyond her Scandinavian contacts. Indeed, it extends across the outermost reaches of our continent and through all levels of society, from the innercity mess of Detroit to the White House and the highest ranks of business and journalism, through three universities and several libraries, Washington tour guiding and Foreign Service Institute teaching... as well as through the half-dozen key communications positions I myself have held. The two of us have also served in a small role in the other direction, promoting goodwill for America in Norway and elsewhere overseas. And now our two sons, both of whom speak Norwegian fluently, are completing the bridge-building across the Atlantic. Erik spends much of his time in Norway and attorney Jim is Norway's Honorary Consul for the state of Montana. Talk about people-to-people diplomacy! And what role has Inger played for me personally? Just read this book! I can only add here that Inger has truly become Valkyrie herself, my fearless fighting comrade who has stood ever ready to pick me up when I fell in battle (which was not seldom), dress my wounds, and spirit me off for R&R to our Valhalla home. What a wife! What a Viking! Watta Gal!"
