The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

Little Erik was a happy boy who loved to skate, to ski and, most of all, to sing. He adored his big brother Nils and, almost as much, he adored Greta, the lovely daughter of the widow who owned the estate of Hanssonborg on which his family lived. Of course Nils and Greta would marry some day. To Erik anything else was unthinkable. However, the estate was sadly in need of money and when a rich Baron asked for Greta's hand in marriage, Fru Hansson did not see how she could withhold her consent.

Erik would not consent however, and the story of how he frightened the Baron, made a trip to Stockholm to obtain money for the estate and, finally, how he brought happiness to Nils and Greta makes an absorbing tale.

Equally absorbing is the story of the trip Erik took with the Stockholm banker and his family. They went to the ancient city of Visby, to the lovely farm lands of Skane, to Gothenburg and through the famous Gota Canal, to the University City of Upsala, and everywhere they saw wonderful sights and learned much about their fascinating native land.
