The story of Somalis in Minnesota begins with three words: sahan, war, and martisoor. Driven from their homeland by civil war and famine, one group of Somali sahan, pioneers, discovered well-paying jobs in the city of Marshall, Minnesota. This is an enlightening introduction to Minnesota's Somalis, who have adjusted to a new climate, new language, and new culture in a region wholly different from their homeland.
