When you return back home from a sea voyage and a land journey, the tour may go on and on afterwards, because so many books are standing there ready to widen and enrich the expedition experiences.

 

Regine Normann:

Krabvåg

 

Regine Normann  was the first Norwegian female author from Northern Norway. She made her debut in the year 1905 with the novel "Krabvåg. Pictures from a small fishing station". It is a fiction story, however, the inspiration and environment knowledge she had from the place where she herself was born and grew up, Bø i Vesteraalen.

I am sorry I cannot bring a link to something about and of Regine Normann in English, but I will keep on searching.
