“An important contribution to the limited number of
studies of immigrant agriculture.”
—Robert W. Frizzell,
Journal of American Ethnic History
Taking innovative and varied approaches to immigration research, the German
and American contributors to this volume focus on migrants from farming
communities along the Rhine who relocated to Wisconsin in the nineteenth
century. Drawing from a wealth of official records and archival materials on both
sides of the Atlantic, these scholars look at the migrants’ situation in their
original homeland, their experience of the migration process, and their relation-
ship to the land in Wisconsin.
“Richly detailed and well researched. . . . By focusing on a specific geographic
area (not just the state of Wisconsin but the southern part of the state), by
expanding to a transatlantic view of the migration process, and by making land
a central theme in the immigration experience, the authors advance our
knowledge about German-speaking migration to America.”
