Discover how Denmark, Norway, and Sweden went from dirt poor agricultural societies in 1850 to wealthy, modern nations by 1920. Go on an amazing journey together with pastors, poets, common people, some Danish royals, and the so-called schoolmen as they lifted Scandinavia from the bottom. The heroes of this transformation: a stubborn school teacher and some young farmhands. As new technologies and globalization are revamping our societies, what can we learn from the past and from the Nordics, and how they transformed during industrialization? And how can we approach human flourishing and meaning-making in times of great change?
