Immigrant Women in the Settlement of Missouri

Creator: Robyn Burnett, Ken Luebbering | History - 2005-06-08

Drawing heavily on the women’s own stories, Immigrant Women in the Settlement of Missouri illustrates common elements of their lives without minimizing the diversity and complexity of each individual’s experience.

Publisher: University of Missouri Press

About this book
Robyn Burnett and Ken Luebbering first looked at how immigration has affected Missouri’s cultural landscape in their popular book German Settlement in Missouri: New Land, Old Ways. Now they tell the stories of women from all across Europe who left the Old World for Missouri. Drawing heavily on the women’s own stories, Immigrant Women in the Settlement of Missouri illustrates common elements of their lives without minimizing the diversity and complexity of each individual’s experience. The book begins with descriptions culled from diaries, letters, and memoirs documenting preparations for the journey, the perilous Atlantic crossing, and the sometimes equally long and arduous trip from the port of entry to Missouri. Burnett and Luebbering go on to examine how women, once in Missouri, coped with the problems of daily life in an unfamiliar and occasionally hostile environment. Whether it was the hardships of the frontier, the harsh realities of urban life, childbirth, the deaths of family members, isolation, or prejudice, their new lives brought numerous challenges. Many found success and contentment, as well, and the book also documents their joys and triumphs: physical survival, economic prosperity, thriving families, friendships, and community celebrations. Because it examines the lives of women from many social classes and ethnic backgrounds, Immigrant Women in the Settlement of Missouri does much to explain the rich cultural diversity Missouri enjoys today. The photographs and narratives relating to Czech, French, German, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, and Polish life will remind descendants of immigrants that many customs and traditions they grew up practicing have roots in their home countries and will also promote understanding of the customs of other cultures. In addition to the ethnic and class differences that affected these women’s lives, the book also notes the impact of the various eras in which they lived, their education, the circumstances of their migrations, and their destinations across Missouri. With their engaging and straightforward narrative, Burnett and Luebbering take the reader chronologically through the history of the state from the colonial period to the Civil War and industrialization. Like all Missouri Heritage Readers, this one is presented in an accessible format with abundant illustrations, and it is sure to please both general readers and those engaged in immigrant and women’s studies.

    Fantastic Book On Missouri For Both Kids And Adults!

    This book is GREAT! As a school teacher, I'm delighted to have this book in my classroom. As a parent, I'm delighted to have it at home. It's an alphabet book, a poetry book, a textbook, and an art book all in one! Though I have lived in Missouri all my life, I sure learned some new things by reading S is for Show Me. I learned about the Kimmswick Bone Beds where mastodons used to live. I learned that nearly all corncob pipes in the world are made in Washington, MO! I learned about caves, springs, animals, ice cream cones, the Pony Express, the Civil War and so much more. This book should be read over and over because there is so much information that it just can't be absorbed in the initial reading. The illustrations are beautiful. Many of the paintings contain hidden details that my kids love to search for. The poems are fun to read aloud to young children and give them just enough information to spark their curiosity. But each page also has a sidebar of text that provides more... 5/5 Elaine Russell (St. Louis, Missouri) - See all my reviews This review is from: S is for Show Me: A Missouri Alphabet (Discover America State by State) (Hardcover) This book is GREAT!

    Tactical flag patches from Gadsden & Culpeper are the best for hats and jackets

    Be true to your state, or states, with these tactical patches from Gadsden & Culpepper. I have five of them, all in distressed monotone shades, for wearing on my hats and jacket sleeves. Well, three are states: Arizona (two versions), where I live now, and Maine, where I’m from. The other two patches are U.S. flags.I wear the patches on my hats (one tan, one camo) or on jacket sleeves. These patches are tough and durable, and quite attractive. The stitching is excellent, even on Maine’s detailed flag design. They are pre-velcro’d with the hook side of the velcro, and seem like they’ll stick together for a long time.Hats and jackets universally have the woolly loop part, so you can slap the patches right on.On the colors, well, it’s a matter of choice. The tan shade called “Coyote” seemed to work best with my hats and jackets, and I like the distressed and tactical look of the monochrome patches.
