From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5-- With their parents, Carl Erik and his brother made their way from Sweden to America in Sandin's The Long Way to a New Land (Harper, 1981). Here the family moves from New York to a farm community in Minnesota. Historically accurate, the story chronicles a typical journey made by more than 50,000 Swedish emigrants in 1868 and 1869. Their perseverance is typified in this tale of four immigrants traveling westward in America at that time. The illustrations, well-executed black-line drawings washed with color, do much to establish the mood and setting. The dominant gray of the train scenes conveys the dismal nature of those accommodations while the Minnesota countryside seems washed in sunlight. This is a story that will attract competent primary - grade readers and will be equally suitable for less-able readers in the intermediate grades, especially those studying the United States and its immigration. --Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA
