Osebol: Marit Kapla


Near the river Klar?lven, snug in the dense forest landscape of northern V?rmland, lies the Swedish village of Osebol. It is a quiet place, one where relationships take root over decades, and where the bustle of city life is replaced by the sound of wind in the trees. In the last half-century, the automation of the lumber industry and the steady drip of relocations to the cities for work have seen Osebol’s adult population dwindle to only 40-odd residents. But still, life goes on. Those who have inherited their farms for generations live alongside recent arrivals from near and far. People age; children grow up. Heirlooms are passed from hand to hand, and memories from mouth to mouth. In this extraordinary book, Marit Kapla has gathered the voices of the villagers themselves, interviewing almost all of those remaining between the ages of 18 and 92.
