Oilcloth Stories

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


When immigrants from Central Europe arrived in America in the late 1800s and early 1900s, they often came to cities like Bethlehem, Pennsylvania – cities bursting with the new energies and opportunities of industrialization, and with the challenges of assimilating dozens of cultures into what had been pastoral communities only a few decades before. For most immigrants, industrial working conditions were harsh and brutal, and living conditions were not much better. But the immigrants – Windish, Hungarians, Slovaks, and others – stayed and made lives for themselves … lives that reached from nineteenth-century famine in Europe and the horrors of World War I to man’s landing on the moon and the dawn of the computer age. It is in the stories of individual lives that this immigrant journey can be glimpsed – in everyday stories, universally human stories – stories told around a table covered in oilcloth.
