A Long Row Home

May 11 2022

Nature writer Sigri Sandberg is a restless mother of two who lives in several places. Her restlessness is compounded by death and illness in the lives of loved ones and upsetting reports about the state of the planet. She longs for peace of mind. She wonders about what home really is and what it means to belong somewhere.

Sandberg decides to row the Sognefjord, the more than 200 kilometers of the world’s longest navigable fjord, in an old wooden rowboat. She starts at the mouth of the fjord, in the area where she lived as a child, and rows inland, toward the farm where she now lives part-time.

A Long Row Home is a beautiful story about Norway’s longest fjord – and an attempt to find home.
