"This is a charming translation, scrupulously annotated, of the long-lost travel diary of Jacob Van Hinte (1889-1948), author of the monumental Netherlanders in America. Van Hinte's energetic five-week sprint in the summer of 1921 from "Dutch" Hoboken up the river by dayliner to Albany and on to the Dutch-settled towns and cities in the Midwest convinced him that the ""migration to America had been a blessing"" to the Dutch. But in his brief sojourn among the descendants of the immigrant generation, he also became aware of the "tales of misery" and the "noble struggles" of the settlers that will put readers of all ethnic backgrounds to wondering about their own poignant histories."—Firth Fabend, author of Zion on the Hudson: Dutch New York and New Jersey in the Age of Revivals
