Product description


"I sometimes pause in amazement," writes Erika Schelby in this delightful book, "about the curious connectedness of things." With wit, irony, and extraordinary insight, she explores the connectedness -- and contradictions -- in all manner of things, not least of all in the unexpected ties between her native Germany and her adopted state of New Mexic .

¬ Andrew J. Bacevich, Professor Emeritus of History and International Relations, Boston University

With wit and humor, this book tells the story one woman's voyage in search of a fascinating but hidden piece of American history. It ranges from frontier battles to dinners at the White House - and concludes by helping us answer the question of how the United States became the country it is today.

- Stephen Kinzer, author and award-winning correspondent; Senior Fellow in International and Public Affairs, Watson Institute, Brown University _________________________________________________________________

A deeply personal account of the imprint Germans left on New Mexico and the United States at large...A delightfully eclectic history told with charm and thoughtfulness.

¬ Kirkus Reviews

Especially recommended as a powerful 'must have' acquisition for any collection strong in New Mexican literature or German immigrant experiences in America.

¬ Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
