I found this book to be a very interesting story of how to people came to America with little else than the clothes om their backs and expecting their first child. Instead of New York, they sail to New Orleans and travel up the Mississippi and end up living in a small town between St Louis and Kansas City to start their lives in America. The story covers several generations and gives one a perspective on how others who came to the USA survived. All in all a very enjoyable read.

A most enjoyable read. The experiences of this family through the generations is kind of like visiting the past generations of your own family. Many facets, and many family secrets that each family keeps to themselves. It helps one to think back on their own family and the things that have happened and gives new meaning to family secrets. All in all a very fascinating read.
