About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

In the fall of 1885, Herman Dietrich Wessels, his pregnant wife and their four girls set sail from Germany for America. What happened after arriving at Galveston, Texas, wouldn’t be easy. But it set the stage for generations of the Wessels clan to survive and thrive in America; a tradition that continues to this day.

Generations: Just Between Us chronicles the ups, downs and everything in the middle from the 19th century through early 2000s. Through meticulous research, interviews and historical recreation, Larry W. Wessels documents the incredible experiences of a German immigrant family and their offspring. It’s a story filled with excitement: As one generation flees the country to ensure their safety, another will go off to fight and defend their nation. One family member survives a sinking ship, while another makes it through his aircraft being shelled in a hellish barrage. But all members of every generation seek the same thing: a better life for their children, the next generation.

Filled with historical photographs and keen insights into bygone eras, Generations reveals the drama, heartache, joy and triumph of one American family. But it is also the story of so many families in this proud nation of immigrants. It is a book about overcoming struggle, working hard, and achieving the American Dream. It is a book about love and war and where our roots really grow. It is, at its core, a book about America.

Deftly constructed at 352 pages, Generations: Just Between Us is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Family - Multigenerational category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Generations meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $23.95.

Additionally, Generations can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks
