This memoir is a testament to the immigrant experience of Eastern European Jews and their miraculous integration and contribution to the American Dream. It spans the cultural and technological divide between tenement outhouse to CAT Scans and includes first-hand accounts of the 1904 General Slocum Steamboat and 1937 Hindenburg disasters. It's a compelling tribute to strong Women in the person of Henriette and her mother. A mother and daughter who raised a family of seven without a male breadwinner. It's the story of a matriarch who was deservedly worshiped by her husband and son. And finally, it's a story of rags to riches and the unlimited possibility that was 20th Century America.
