A desperate murderer finds his way aboard the transatlantic journey of 1852.
Life was difficult in the mid-nineteenth century Germany. Most people were suffering from distress and afflictions: economic conditions, religious freedom, famine, and political upheaval. The Pollmanns from Hummersen, Germany, were enduring just such tragedies of the era. When the crops failed in the mid-1800s, Christian Pollmann reacted by formulating a plan to travel to the New World. The journey was to be an arduous one. On board the Don Quixote, the Pollmanns were introduced to the desperate lives of immigrants - lack of food, sparse medical attention, cramped living space, and unadulterated filth. In addition, an unexpected murder on board drove Christian to search for extra protection for his family. Also, discovering and attending to two stowaway urchins became a dangerously incredible task that the family handled well. The historical novel is based on true facts yet is intertwined with fictional stories, helping readers to envision the immigrants' upheaval in the Old World, the undaunted passage across the Atlantic, and the Pollmanns unflinching struggle as they settled in America.
