At the beginning of the twentieth century, in the poverty-stricken Swedish region of Smaland, young Valter, the son of a soldier, explores the world around him and watches his older brothers emigrate to America. In this novel of the life of a farm boy, first published in three volumes in 1946, Vilhelm Moberg sensitively explores his own childhood. With gentle irony and a loving knowledge of the landscape, the people, and the large issue of class struggle, Moberg offers American readers a deeply moving view of the other side of Swedish immigration
The unknown Swedes : a book about Swedes and America, past and present by Vilhelm Moberg( Book )

Roger McKnight's translation of The Unknown Swedes is the first English-language book to reveal Moberg's views on emigration, America, and Sweden. In the 1950 edition of The Unknown Swedes, Moberg was guardedly optimistic about the United States. In 1968 Moberg, distraught at America's involvement in the Vietnam War, appended the chapter "Twenty Years Later" to the new edition of The Unknown Swedes. This essay attacks "vulgar patriotism" in America

The brides of midsummer by Vilhelm Moberg( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For centuries, people have celebrated every Midsummer's Eve at an ancient spring near a small Swedish village. On that special night, when unmarried men and women dance and some unusual activities are permitted, the Bridal Spring has special powers. Vilhelm Moberg introduces four musicians on the last day that each one will ever know: a curmudgeonly fiddler from the 1930s, a sad and conscientious key-harp player from the plague era of 1711, a ne'er-do-well who plays the flute in 1545, and a goat-horn blower from prehistoric times who, like the others, only seeks happiness with a woman. Binding their stories together is the voice of the Bridal Spring itself, tart and grudgingly compassionate--and slow to reveal its secret
