Synopsis: Unique among early settlers of Texas was a group of political refugees, intellectuals and Freethinkers- a segment of the impressive Germany-to-Texas movement of the late 1840s, who established new homes for themselves in the beautiful Hill Country some fifty miles north of San Antonio. The author was the bride of a great-grandson of Ernst Kapp. She gives a first hand report of Hill Country ranch life in the first quarter of the 20th c. Based on letters written by Ernst Kapp and his wife, the great grandparents of her husband who made the voyage from Bremerhafen to Galveston and thence to Indianola in Oct. 1849. She has included a wealth of information on Prince Carl Solms-Braunfels, the extraordinary promoter for the German Immigration Company who brought more than 5,000 settlers in a three year period.
