Description
 
Journey Into Poland is a memoir about family and the search for my roots, but itís more than that. I wanted to introduce you to its enchanting beauty; its friendly, obliging people; and sprinkle in some of its history one must know in order to understand the Polish character. Americans typically have little exposure to Warsaw and Krakow, and none to the smaller villages and pure farmlands which are a world away from city life. I wanted to share that flawless simplicity which I feel is ó the real Poland, hidden from the world and often from the descendants of those daring early adventurers who crossed the ocean in life threatening conditions aboard overloaded boats. The story of Polish immigrants doesnít end with startling statistics or the intake center at Ellis Island. It continues for decades, and sometimes we are lucky enough to discover who we really are.
