The day the Melkerson family arrive on Seacrow Island, it's a bit of a shock to their system. It's so quiet there-none of the shops and bustle they're used to. And the cottage they've rented for the summer is a little bit well ... basic. But what Seacrow Island does have is woods to wander in, fish to catch, boats to sail in, and all kinds of animals. And before long they find it has even more important things, too-adventure, fun, exploration, friends. Perhaps it's going to be leaving that's the really hard thing?

True North: Literary Translation in the Nordic Countries is the first book to focus solely on literary translation from, to, and between the Nordic tongues. The book is divided into three main sections. These are novels, children’s literature, and other genres – encompassing drama, crime fiction, sagas, cookbooks, and music – although, naturally, there are connections and overlapping themes between the sections. Halldór Laxness, Virginia Woolf, Selma Lagerlöf, Astrid Lindgren, Mark Twain, Henrik Ibsen, Henning Mankell, Janis Joplin, and Jamie Oliver are just some of the authors analysed. Topics examined include particular translatorial challenges; translating for specific audiences or influencing audiences through translation; re-translation; the functions of translated texts; the ways in which translation can change a genre; the creation of identity through translation; and more. As is clear from this list, many of the theories proposed and findings discussed here are also relevant to the wider field of translation studies, as well as to literary studies more generally. It is time for the world’s growing Nordicmania to influence the field of translation studies, and for translation to take its place as a relevant and essential issue in our understanding of the Northern countries. The varied chapters in this book will contribute to these stimulating and critical conversations.

I am currently retired from full-time work, but I am a freelance musician at this time. My early involvement into the art and culture groomed me for the involvement in writing this playbook. I have been a singer, actor, musician, songwriter, etc. I am an active senior citizen and the playbook has been my personal project. I wrote this playbook while I was working two jobs6 days and 5 nights weekly. Believe it or not, I wrote this back in 1972 and today it is very much still going on. I knew people involved whether young and old alike. I have seen the good and the bad. What I have written are the things that have gone on and still going on today, even more people involved from top to bottom. Parts of the playbook are realistic today because of others like me who are trying to reach out to save as many of our young people as possible. We are involved in youth programs so we have an edge in talking to them and to keep them aware of all the pitfalls. I hope to produce the play in our community with the youth group and others who may be interested. We want to let them know there is still hope and the younger people will have a big part to play while others like oversee their efforts. It wont be easy but we have to try to Grab Hold of the Wind.
