Synopsis: A story of the merging of cultures in the American mixing-bowl of rural Ohio.

The thousands of Central European immigrants who came to the coalfields of Guernsey and Noble Counties in southeastern Ohio between 1880 and 1920 brought little with them but their carpetbags and their religion. Dr. Lorle Porter tells their story one of peasants resisting urbanity and Europeans reluctantly becoming American.

Dr. Porter wrote The Immigrant Cocoon based on more than a decade of research gleaned from census records, naturalization records, military service records, oral histories, cemetery and church records. She traces these people and their struggle from the time they arrived in Cambridge, Ohio in 1882 through the end of World War II. Features of this award-winning* book that make it an excellent choice for anyone interested in Ohio history or genealogy include:
a surname index of over 850 names
a 22 page Bibliography
hundreds of photographs, most of them from private collections
dozens of detailed maps, town plats, and charts
detailed footnotes
603 pages
foil-stamped hardbound cover with striking color dustjacket

Given the Outstanding Regional History Award for 1995 by OAHSM
