by Ingri and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire
Lise and Lasse were Sami and siblings who lived at the top of the world where “bears snored in their winter sleep”, and the Northern Lights danced in the sky and brightened up the cold dark winter nights. The two children have wonderful adventures, but also some mishaps. Learn what they did and how they lived as a nomadic people.
At the time this pleasing and informative book was published (1935), the word “Lapp” was used to refer to the Sami people of northern Europe. The publishers of this reprint have kept the original language.
