Over het boek
Although her story is inspiring, it represents the starting point and foundation for the more extensive saga of her numerous descendants. Through their captivating personal stories, one can trace the expansion of America westward through the farmlands of Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin and Minnesota to the plains of Kansas and onward to California. The accounts of adventurers, abolitionists, Civil War heroes, lawyers, engineers and inventors are as varied as the people who populated the generations of Seviah's family.
Whether your family is deeply rooted in American soil or you are a relative newcomer to this land, Seviah's Story will provide a new lens through which to view United States history.
