Growth of the Soil is a giant in Norwegian literature. Knut Hamsun received the Nobel Prize in 1920 for the novel about the pioneer Isak seeking his own land up north, and the hare-lipped woman Inger, coming walking to him over the mountains. Together they create a life, building the farm and the family called Sellanrå.
