This colorful and engaging book follows the exciting true story of Karl Schmidt, as he leaves his homeland in Germany and settles in West Bend, Iowa.

Featuring Karl's children: Will Schmidt, Lizzie Schafer, Ed Schmidt, Charlie Schmidt, Mike Schmidt, Anna Krug, and Henry Schmidt. Forty six pages of richly textured illustrations and clever rhymes tell the story of the very first one of the West Bend Schmidts who came to America, and who produced hundreds of descendants in the Palo Alto County area.

The back of the book also features many rare photographs of the actual, real-life individuals who are portrayed in this children's book, along with several pages of facts about the true story behind the book.

If you want to teach your kids or grandkids about their family history in a fun and beautiful way, this book would make a great holiday gift!
