Sápmi's Jättinna - The truth about Långa Lappflickan

Jörn's library, Skellefteå

Author Åke Lundgren talks in words and pictures about his new documentary book, which took 48 years to complete. It is the story of Christina Chatarina Larsdotter (1819-1854), known as Långa lappflickan, Stor-Stina and The Lapland Giantess.

This unique female fate was the subject of Åke's first novel "Långa lappflickan - sägnen om Stor-Stina" (1981). It was later reworked and came out as an anniversary edition in 2011. Now her remains have been found and Åke has written an extensive documentary about her fate.
"Sápmi's jättinna - sanningen om Långa lappflickan". It is richly illustrated and contains a large amount of factual material collected over 48 years.
