Description
 
William Kurelek (au) (il); Margaret S. Engelhart (au). This book shows a little of what it meant to be a European immigrant, using the remarkable color paintings & writings of a great artist, William Kurelek, who was himself the son of such an immigrant. Kurelek states, “As a historical painter . . . I had to record the crises, the calamities, the hunger, thirst, sweat, toil of the people settling into an untamed country. This I feel is nothing to be ashamed of. On the contrary, it glorifies the courage, the service, the toughness . . .” The book shows why the immigrants left Europe, how they got to the new country & found work, & acquired land to farm; & their family lives at home, religion & celebrations. An “Econo-Clad book (library binding).”
