9781502445957: The Manor House: Tales from the Hudson Valley's Past

The Hudson Valley abounds with the history of the immigrants who settled there in the 19th century. Imagine setting out to seek your fortune in a changing world on the brink of war. In these six tales, E.A. Selig, vividly tells the stories of six immigrants, bringing to life stories of struggle, heart-ache, happiness and hope. These fictitious tales bring to life a young English immigrant girl who suffers the loss of her father; an indentured servant who buys his freedom; an Irish immigrant who endures tragedy; a German immigrant seeking his future; a freedman who grapples against prejudice and a privileged daughter who is secluded from reality. E.A.Selig's stories explore what might have been in New York's Hudson Valley, and shed light on the period, allowing readers to follow these admirable young Americans, as they seek their own identity in this new world.
