Overview

As far as I am concerned, I can, hand on heart, declare naught else but that I thank the Lord that I am here and regret that I did not come sooner. German immigrant Johann Friedrich Diederichs, writing in 1848 in Manitowoc, Wisconsin

"A Settler s Year" provides a rare glimpse into the lives of early immigrants to the upper Midwest. Loyd Heath's evocative photographs taken at Old World Wisconsin, the country s largest outdoor museum of rural life, lushly illustrate stories woven by historian and poet Kathleen Ernst and compelling firsthand accounts left by the settlers themselves.
In this beautiful book, readers will discover the challenges and triumphs found in the seasonal rhythms of rural life in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. As they turn the pages they ll travel from sprawling farm to tidy crossroads village, and from cramped and smoky cabins to gracious, well-furnished homes. Along the way they ll experience mundane and back-straining chores, cherished folk traditions, and annual celebrations.
At its heart, "A Settler s Year" is about people dreaming of, searching for, and creating new homes in a new land. This beautiful volume transports us back to the pioneer era and inspires us to explore the stories found on our own family trees."
