This page provides information on two books by Veli Niinimaa:
FinnFacts FinnFacts is a small handbook of North American Finnish organizations, activities, cultural pillars and general information. The second half of the booklet introduces the reader to basic knowledge of Finland, outlining the key features, which make up the Finnish culture. The book is intended for those born outside of Finland having only limited background knowledge of the nation and its language, but interested in maintaining their Finnish heritage. This handbook is 63 pages.
FinnPride FinnPride is a booklet written about the many outstanding accomplishments by North American Finns and the nation of Finland and some of its leading citizens. We can be very proud of the good name that the Finnish carpenters, loggers, miners, cooks and housekeepers established. As the good work of the silent majority is hard to record, FinnPride focuses on the individual achievements in many different areas such as arts, science, sports, entertainment, business and politics. The book highlights also many successful organizations and corporations. This booklet is 63 pages.
