Reviews

"Eric Dregni's deceptively delightful In Cod We Trust combines understated humor and serious scholarship. Readers will finish this book smiling, realizing they've been taught much about Norway's past and present-including its model health care system-while being entertained by a colicky baby testing his parents' patience. Part travelogue, part examination of how the immigrant experience affects generations on both sides of the Atlantic, Dregni's self-effacing Scandinavian style is a welcome treat."-Arvonne Fraser "A hilariously fun and moving read for anyone who has dreamed of returning to the Norwegian homeland."-Walter Mondale "Eric Dregni's spirited travel memoir to Norway joins that classic American genre-the quest tale in search of family and ethnic roots. It's a special pleasure to see the Scandinavian immigration story teased out here with wit and acuity, the immigrant going the other way. In Cod We Trust is the story of a man not only looking for his family past but welcoming the next generation."-Patricia Hampl
