SURVIVAL IN SAMILAND, Cultural cookbook and stories after seasons in the Swedish mountains, is an important and unique book. The lives of both the indigenous people in Scandinavia; the Sami and the pioneers in the Swedish northern mountains were hard. Mostly because of the climate they had to be both creative and cooperative when times were tough. Usually you read about problems when two cultures have to live together sharing the same space. There are other more positive stories too. This is one of them and this book is a proof of those good things can be created when we come together and share our knowledge. In the book you will also find a number of specially selected recipes from Annica, Karin and families of pupils at the school Saxnäs, Vilhelmina. Still, it is the recipes’ importance from a cultural perspective that is the book’s theme: how the lives and food followed the changing seasons and how their lives were influenced by the landscape in which they lived and worked. Read the stories about how Sami and pioneer families in Vilhelmina’s mountain villages used to live, when this was still roadless land... The authors’ upbringing and experiences of mountain culture have formed the basis of the book’s content. This meeting of generations in their home surroundings is unique.
