Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Even though they are historically one of the smaller immigrant streams, nineteenth-century Dutch migrants and their descendants have made parts of West Michigan their own. The first Dutch in Michigan were religious dissenters whose commitment to Calvinism had long-reaching effects on their communities, even in the face of later waves of radicalized industrial immigrants and the challenges of modern life. From Calvin College to Meijer Thrifty Acres and the Tulip Festival, the Dutch presence has enriched and informed people throughout the state. Larry ten Harmsel skillfully weaves together the strands of history and modern culture to create a balanced and sensitive portrayal of this vibrant community.

About the Author

Larry ten Harmsel was born in Zeeland, Michigan, and has been a lifelong student of Dutch culture in America. He has also studied, taught, and traveled extensively in The Netherlands. He is the founder and director of the Grand Tour of Europe, sponsored by Western Michigan University, where he serves as Professor of English and Associate Dean of the Lee Honors College.
