Eilert Sundt, Sexual Customs in Rural Norway: A Nineteenth-Century Study Translation of: Om sædeligheds-tilstanden i Norge, Translated and Edited by Odin W. Anderson, First Edition, © 1993, Iowa State University Press, Ames, Iowa, Hardcover, 296 Pages, 0-8138-0588-0, 306.7'09481'09034--dc20. 

A compelling portrait of rural Norway of the 1850s. It shattered the contemporary romantic depiction of Norwegian peasants. Originally published in Norway in 1857, it is not fiction, it is real life, a study by a sociologist who went into rural Norway and wrote about the common people. There is nothing to compare to this information. The translation is excellent and very readable. Do not let the title mislead you, this book is not what the title might seem to imply. The book is about life in rural Norway, what the people wore, what they ate, and how they lived.
