As the title suggests, this is a comprehensive study of Pennsylvania German history, geography, culture, society, the arts and anything else that relates to the unique people — plain and fancier — who live in or have migrated from central Pennsylvania.
This weighty and attractively illustrated tome contains 19 interpretive essays on various aspects of Pennsylvania German life and culture. Much of its contents will be familiar to anyone who has examined the Pennsylvania Dutch in depth. But here it is all in one volume.
