Summary
"America...the golden land of freedom, hope and opportunity held its immigration doors wide open. A multitude of German-Russians were enticed by what the country had to offer. Their ancestors had been lured to the Volga River Region of Russia by Catherine the Great's manifesto of 1763. by the late 1800s many of those promises and privileges no longer held true. Trouble was looming on the horizon for them. Begin the journey in 1911 and visit the German-Russian villages of Volmer, Pfeifer and Schuck, Russia. Meet four German-Russian families, the Ertles, Gartners, Lambrechts and Hochnadels, who packed up their worldly belongings in trunks and said their final goodbyes to family members staying behind. Sail with them as lowly steerage passengers on steamships. accompany the exhausted, confused travelers through the immigration ports of Ellis Island, Boston and Philadelphia. Ultimately, the four families planted deep roots in northeastern Colorado where the land and climate reminded them of Russia."--back cover
