1924. Three white, clapboard, one-room school houses opened to educate the children in a farming settlement called Krassna, North Dakota, located on dirt roads about ten miles from the little village of Strasburg. The boys and girls were all descendents of Germans from Russia. Their parents and grandparents had arrived in the late 1800s from the steppes of Russia. Traditions passed down, through generations of a people who were first displaced from Germany and then from Russia, provided them strength to face the hardship of this new land. This book offers the reader a glimpse of life's experiences in the Germans from Russia community. Their isolation and the ability to cope with North Dakota's harsh climate created a supporting community that allowed their children to thrive. They survived.
