Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up. This volume differs from other books available on German Americans in its focus on personal narratives. Although the Hooblers include historical data, the bulk of each chapter consists of original accounts taken from interviews, autobiographies, letters, and journals, all of which support and elaborate on the text. These accounts are inclusive in terms of gender, age, and geographical location, as well as for years and events discussed. Unfortunately, the often small black-and-white photos, combined with the narrow columns of print, give the book a dull, scholarly appearance. The time line is abbreviated and disappointing, particularly in comparison with that in Bernard and Rosemarie Cook's German Americans (Rourke, 1991). Otherwise, the Album is a useful addition to ethnic studies, especially if used with Irene Franck's The German-American Heritage (Facts on File, 1988), the best and most thorough of the in-print books. Other useful titles include Anne Galicich's The German Americans (Chelsea, 1995) and Thomas Schouweiler's Germans in America (Lerner, 1994).?Ann W. Moore, Schenectady County Public Library, NY

The Hoobler's are national treasures. Everything they write is honest, interesting and insightful. This is part of a serious of various immigrant groups. I don't know how much children will like it but it is helpful when they study American history. Or want to know about their own heritage.

My grandchildren, boys who are not social scientists, liked to dip into it. I have several in the series and enjoyed each.
