Description
 
During the last decades of the 19th century, approximately 100,000 Czechs immigrated to America. Unlike other Slavic groups, Czechs arrived on U.S. shores both skilled & literate, able to function with ease in city & country alike. In the 20th century, the tradition of Czech-American achievement was continued by such accomplished figures as McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc, astronaut Eugene Cernan, & tennis star Martina Navratilova. In the decades following World War II, more than 40,000 Czechs fled political oppression for the freedom of the U.S. & Canada. This book celebrates the ethnic heritage of the Czech immigrants. Black & white photos & illustrations.
