Dutch Immigrant Memoirs and Related Writings Dutch Immigrant Memoirs and Related Writings

by Lucas, Henry S.

This classic collection of mostly nineteenth-century, 114 first-person travel accounts and personal reminiscences by Dutch immigrant pioneers provides a unique perspective on the colourful history of Dutch immigration to the U.S.A. Compiled by respected University of Washington historian Henry Lucas - he is perhaps even better known for another classic (out of print) 'Netherlanders in America'. Beginning with the “new Dutch immigration” in 1846, this expansive volume explores the daily course of life during the early days of Dutch settlements in places like Holland, Michigan, and concludes by examining Dutch migrations to states like Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Striking is the writers’ faith and trust in God as they penned their captivating stories of struggles, hardships and triumphs.
