Few people who review books have at least two additional insights into the story. This book is about the founding of a number of Jewish agricultural colonies in the US in the 1880's. And much of the content is focused on the colony at Norma / Alliance / Brotmansville, New Jersey, where; (1) I was born and grew up in Norma and today, a sister and two brothers live nearby and (2) both my late cousin, Shirley Crystal Goren the granddaughter of a founding member and I were interviewed by the author, Ellen Eisenberg when she was researching this book, while I believe Ellen was a student at Syracuse University. Ellen is related to one of the founders of the Alliance Colony and while Ellen wrote about many other colonies, it is clear to me that her best sources were from our community because of her family roots here. That close family connection I feel enhanced her excellent and diligent gathering of information that I greatly respect and from all that I have read, this book is the single best representation of the story of these early Jewish colonies in America.

This book presents several remarkable social issues that may be difficult for 21st century readers to understand.
