Czech Americans: The Immigrant Experience
Stephanie Saxon-Ford (au); Daniel Patrick Moynihan (in)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
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.
