. . . BEYOND SING THE WOODS is a book that seems almost certain to be not only one of the best-loved novels of many seasons but one of the classics of our time. It has in it the strangeness, the elemental beauty and the simple humanity of the great tradition of Norwegian literature. It is a story of violence and vitality, of sanguine men who are worthy descendants of the Vikings and of the great primitive men of the dark Norwegian forests; it is the story of the distrust of the strong, simple men who are hunters, dairymen and farmers for the weaker but craftier men of the towns.
. . . It is like the great primitive stories of legendary heroes, yet it is a story of the last century dealing with a Norwegian family living in their ancient homestead. The story is told in an impressively simple, colloquial prose as by a wise and experienced story-teller entertaining a quiet group around a fire on a winter night.
