Cover of German-AmericanaGerman-Americana, Selected Essays, brings together essays by award-winning author Don Heinrich Tolzmann that explore America's German heritage from the arrival of the first Germans in America in the seventeenth century to the present. According to Jerry Glenn's Foreword, Tolzmann "has little competition for the title 'Mr. German-Americana'," and that this volume "collects thirty-nine diverse essays, some rather general, some more narrowly focused, but most with an emphasis on topics that have broad popular appeal," and "a unifying thread in many of the pieces is a personal touch."
