Description
 
Today, more Americans claim German ancestry than any other ethnic group, and Germans are the largest single ethnic group in the U.S. Overpopulation, poverty, and constant warfare among neighboring religious factions caused many Germans to make the dangerous journey across rough seas and in crowded ships to come to America. Here, they found a good life and prosperity in farming, industry, and science. The largest number of immigrants took up dairy farming and played a considerable role in shaping agricultural life in America. With festivals such as Oktoberfest and celebrations such as German-American Day, it is obvious that German culture will have a strong influence on American life for years to come. Full-color Illustrations. Juvenile audience.
