about

Abner's Journey to America is an historically accurate adventure story which tells of ten year old Abner, his family, his friends and members of his religious group who are forced to leave home in central Europe in the 1730s. They not only encounter many dangers including pirates, storms, thieves, illness, death, little food and bad water, many find that to pay for their passage to America they must become indentured servants. Abner is among them. How he faces these dangers, his relationships with other refugees and how he grows to accept whatever lies ahead makes a compelling story. Liberally sprinkled with Pennsylvania Dutch dialect, customs and folklore, readers are in for a rare treat in this engaging story which takes them back to a time when refugees by the thousands were caught up in religious persecution that was based on the laws of central Europe. Although the subject is heavy, the story is not. Abner and the other children find ways to enjoy themselves no matter what the circumstances
