    If only my college text books had been as easy to read and understand. Walter Dujmovits' approach results in a very understandable history. He brings to the reader the information that was available to the villager in different time frames. I was able to understand the thoughts that were going through the emigrants' minds as the book progresses through different time frames. He further discusses the happenings going on in America at the same time that made emigration plausible. This is something that many overlook when looking at the history of the area that was not officially known as Burgenland until 1921. The author answers the question as to what was going on at the same time in America and identifies the westward expansion that was occurring, without which emigration would have been extremely different. The author does an excellent job of covering both the emigrant and the immigrant aspects. I must say it is a treasure trove of information by time frame, village, family and... More > occupation. It clearly points out why various villages were faced with survival,the wars, crop failures, changes in county boundaries and laws, and even the steamship replacing the sailing vessel as a means of transportation. Obviously those that made the decision must have been going on blind faith, and their willingness to work to succeed. All of this being done during a time frame that, unlike the present day, did not provide instant information regarding the happenings where they were emigrating to.< Less
