Growth of the Soil is the best-known work of the Norwegian writer Knut Hamsun and for which he won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920. The novel is written in the style of Norwegian new realism.

In this novel we learn the story of Isak, a very strong country man, and his wife Inger.

The couple works very hard to move forward in a land that at first seems hostile. In addition to working, they take care of their children and try to do the right thing in life.

The book Growth of the Soil is an ode to rural life and the first settlers who populated present-day Norway. It is quite critical of progress and idealizes life in the natural environment and in connection with the land, which for Knut Hamsun is the basis of man's strength.

This digital edition of the book Growth of the Soil is based on the translation by W.W. Worst.
