The title of the book explains the book. First, Dale A. Burkholder, the author, takes the reader on a tour to the Emmental Valley in Switzerland. Then you find the story of Christian Burkholder’s life. Lastly, you are introduced to Christian’s writings. I appreciated Dale’s acknowledgement in his preface that “we do not know” everything. Many hours have gone into the research and documentation of this book. The inclusive genealogy of the Christian Burkholder family will be highly appreciated by the Burkholders and other genealogical buffs. [First paragraph]
