Swiss immigrant, re-establishment, alienation, development of United States
This fascinating anthology of letters written by immigrants to the United States during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries is a thoroughly engrossing text. What emerges from the various groupings of correspondence is a picture of a hum~ odyssey that is often of heroic proportions. The immense courage to uproot oneself and voyage to an unknown and in some instances unfriendly environment is amply demonstrated as one reads through the sixty-three letters that comprise this collection.
