Two sacks : one family's journey from Swiss/Germany to America in 1803-1805 / Jeff W. Ishee.

Ishee, Jeff, (author.).


"Follow this family of nine, ranging in age from 2 to 69, as they travel down the Rhine River aboard a Dutch cutter; depart Amsterdam as ‘Redemptioners’ aboard the brig Commerce; trek on foot down The Great Wagon Road from Philadelphia through Lancaster, Pennsylvania and Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley to the Carolinas and Georgia; to finally cross the remote Indian trails of the Alabama Territory and reach their destination in the wilderness of the Mississippi Territory. Along this epic journey, they would welcome new friendships, test their endurance, and suffer enormous tragedy. The reader will be transported in time to a period of history when dauntless men and women from the Old Country sought a new life in America, willing to pay the price of whatever it took to establish their families in a new world."--
