Published here without alteration, Letters to America: Translated, Edited, and Retold is a manuscript finished by Guntram G. Bischoff shortly before his death in 1988. The work consists of two separate parts. In the first part, Bischoff translated and edited eighty-four letters written between 1882 and 1904 to Heinrich Arndsmann of Quincy, Illinois, by the parents, brother, and sister whom the young German immigrant had left behind. In the second part, Bischoff sought to recreate, through a commentary on these letters, the mental world of a young Heinrich Arndsmann as he endeavored to maintain familial ties across the broad expanse of the Atlantic Ocean.

Review:

In analyzing these letters, [Bischoff] brought to his task an understanding that could never have been acquired solely through study. -- From the Foreword by George Beech
