I have gained such insight from reading this book, about the Czechs in Chicago where my husband's grandparents settled after moving to America as little children. It shows such wonderful pictures and tells of the history in the area they lived and worked in. My praises go to the author, Malynne Sternstein and her explanations. She made it seem that you were there experiencing their trials and joys with them. Giving you a glimpse from the 1800's to now and the changes and growth that benefited the city. Thank you, Malynne. I am indebted to you.

The Anton Kolar house became famous for being built on the same property that the O'Leary family settled on and where the Chicago fire started in 1871. A fire station academy now stands there. My husband's relative must have known his house would be remembered.

I bought this book for my 89 year old father who grew up in Chicago's Czech neighborhood and then in New Buffalo, Michigan. He LOVED this book and dwelled on each page and photo!!

Delighted to find this little book reviewing the Czech communities of Chicago over the past century. Lots of pictures and very nicely written exploring the culture, core values, migration, activities, and traditions of Czech settlers in this area. A bonus surprise was finding a picture of my father in here! This little book is going to be a marvelous Christmas present for members of our family.

I grew up in Chicagoland and so this book was a walk into the past for me. Also, I identify with the Czech aspect of this book as much of it relates to the way I was brought up and the neighborhood that I lived in. My Grandma who was my guardian was 100% Czech.
