        Antiques Roadshow | Country Store Journals, ca. 1895

        In this video from Antiques Roadshow, Ken Gloss, appraiser of books and manuscripts, discusses the value of a group of journals, ledgers and logbooks kept by a Norwegian immigrant and owner of a Walle Township, North Dakota country store. Dating between 1893 and 1895, these books reveal details of the rural lives of townspeople who lived on the prairie at a time when the Dakotas had just become a state. The ledgers also provide fascinating insight into the immigrant experience.
