Author Image

Laura Goodman Salverson (1890-1970) was a Canadian author of Icelandic heritage. Born in Winnipeg, she traveled about the country and the United States in her youth. She married George Salverson in 1913 who was a railwayman and she continued her itinerant life. She supplemented their income by writing short stories and later novels. Salverson used her own background as inspiration for three novels about the immigrant experience in Canada. The Viking Heart, perhaps her best work traces the immigration of Icelanders to the region of Gimli, Manitoba. In 1937 she published the Dark Weaver, another book about Nordic immigrants. For this effort she won the Governor General's Literary Award. In 1939 she wrote her autobiography, Confessions of an Immigrant's Daughter. She won a second Governor General's award for this book in the non-fiction category. (Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature)
