I brought this book in hardcover about a dozen years ago.  I could not put it down.   I have loaned it to family and friends and they had the same reaction.  What a brave man who suffered though difficult times.  She also is the author of another Norweign patriot entitled Silent Patroit.  I would highly recommend both books

The authors knew the story had to be told...and they decided to leave nothing out of the written account. They trekked through Norway's fjords and mountains to experience their hero's ordeal themselves. When all in his spy ship were caught and slaughtered by vengeful Gestapo men, he moved on with the help of patriotic Norwegians and Sami people to finally get to Sweden to tell the whole story of Nazi actions and the kindness of many to hide him, feed him, care for his wounds, and see him safely across the border with rifles crackling after them and his rescuers. It was arduous, but the passion of his love for freedom was and still is inspiring even though none of us would wish to endure it. It's a daring story of conquered people demonstrating that though the nation may be occupied by ignoble Nazis their hearts were still immersed in "Ja Vi Elske detted Landet," Yes, we love this land...Norway!

I could hardly put this book down. I wanted to read a different personal account of a person's life during WWII. Amazing account which is well documented! Very exciting!

This was one of the best books I've ever read. The courage of these patriotic people was awe inspiring.

It was interesting and I enjoyed it, but a little 'draggy'. If you are interested in the Norwegian fight against Nazism, it will cup of tea.
