How to feel at home in Norway

This gem from 1949 was just added to our library by a dear friend. Quoting from the fourth last page (p 122): "Above the Arctic Circle is where Norway really begins, the northern natives say. And if Norway is defined as rock-masses in the most stupendous sizes and awe-inspiring shapes whose ever-changing colors are reflected or complemented by sea and sky, they are right. Bodø, the Lofoten Islands, Narvik, Tromsø; each stage of this Arctic journey should have a chapter for itself, although our guess is that even the most flue ntword [sic] descriptions would be inadequate. In any case, we must admit not having been north of Trondheim and can only recommend that you study photographs from these parts for yourself or listen to the tales of more fortunate travelers."
