“Wilhelm Steinert went from Germany to America in 1849.
Like many others, he wanted to write a travelogue. Unlike most, Steinert
sailed to New Orleans. He journeyed on
to Texas, stayed a while, and ascended the Mississippi before he headed home
through New York. Steinert experienced
America, as well as observed it. His
“Book for Emigrants” shows us all that he saw and felt, including his loss of
illusions. Among books of its sort, it
is a gem.”
