English Translation of Lundeatten Fra Aadalen!!

Vivian Gullickson White of Canada commissioned Dr. Stanley Nuland to translate Lundeaaten Fra Aadalen into English. This is wonderful, because parts of the book are written in old Norwegian, which very few Norwegians are able to read now. The translation is excellent, and you can purchase it for $20 at:

 Duane's Red BookDuane has most of the information from the preface of Lundeaaten Fra Aadalen in his paper - I'm not sure if it is an exact translation, but as far as I can tell it is the same information, with some comments from Duane. The pages in the Red Book that contain the info from the Lunde book are pages 3 through 8.
