In 1870, Piotor Riske died from the injuries he incurred during Poland’s struggle for independence from the cruel Russian regime of Czar Alexander II. His son Jan fled his homeland in search of freedom. Unwilling to face the rigors of conscription into the harsh Siberian wastelands of the Russian military, Jan, his bride Suzanna, and his younger cousin Josef escape Poland and face the hope, and trials, of the New World, America. In this epic saga, the War between the States is over, the slaves are free, but the native Indian dilemma is not yet resolved. This true, historically accurate, compelling story depicts the struggles, terror and uncertainty experienced by these pioneers who established an extensive family line in Dakota Territory, in what would become the state of North Dakota. Journey with the Riskes from war-torn Poland, to the coal mines of Pennsylvania, to the wilds of the Dakota frontier, in their fight for survival and independence. Descendants of the family they established in the late 1800s still populate North Dakota and Minnesota.
