First published in Germany in 1867, this autobiographical novel of German immigrants on the antebellum Texas frontier provides revelations about the communities that once called the Hill Country home. A lithograph from 1859 of settler’s near Friedrichsburg by German artist Hermann Lungkwitz, was the natural choice for this period novel in translation.
