Sinopsis:

In The St. Louis German Catholics William Barnaby Faherty, S.J., traces the settlement, growth, and impact of one of St. Louis s most enduring communities. Readers will revel in the mention of friends and family in Faherty s accounts, whether the familiar person played for one of Bob Guelker s legendary SLU soccer teams, shopped at a Winkelmann s Pharmacy or Hanneke Hardware, enjoyed some polka at Strassenfest, devoted time to St. Vincent s Orphans Home or the Catholic Knights, attended services at one of the many formerly German churches, or were taught at one of the parish schools.

From the Inside Flap:

In 1827 Godfried Duden, a travel writer from Cologne, Germany, published a narrative in which he marveled at the similarities between the Mississippi and Missouri River valleys and those of the Rhine valley. He pleaded for his countrymen to take up the plow and till the rich soils of the American West, and a number of Germany’s Catholics responded by moving to St. Louis.

In The St. Louis German Catholics, William Barnaby Faherty, S.J., traces the settlement, growth, and impact of one of St. Louis’s most enduring communities. He covers the history of artists and athletes, politicians and priests, businessmen and philanthropists. Most importantly, Faherty provides a history of the individuals who helped shape and maintain one of St. Louis’s most enduring and influential communities, complete with a profile of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, an order that came to St. Louis from Bavaria to teach in German-language Catholic schools, eventually instructing more than eight thousand children.

Readers familiar with the community will revel in the mention of friends and family in Faherty’s accounts, be it someone who played for one of Bob Guelker’s legendary Saint Louis University soccer teams, shopped at a Winkelmann’s Pharmacy or Hanneke Hardware, enjoyed polka at Strassenfest, devoted time to St. Vincent’s Orphans Home or the Catholic Knights, attended services at one of the many formerly German-speaking churches, or was taught at one of the parish schools.

William Barnaby Faherty, S.J., has written more than forty books about the history of the St. Louis area and Catholicism, including St. Louis: A Concise History; The Irish in St. Louis: An Unmatched Celtic Community; and Dream by the River: Two Centuries of St. Louis Catholicism: 1766–1967.
