Product Overview

This work is a celebration of Yankee-Dutch, the combination language unwittingly adopted by thousands of Holland-Americans after immigration. Written in English with Dutch spellings, "'N Fonnie Bisnis" follows the adventures of Loe Verlak, the prototypical Dutch immigrant as he gets into all sorts of "funny business" roaming around the Dutch community. The fourteen vignettes touch on a wide variety of Dutch life, from Sunday school picnics through everyday jobs to the joys and trials of marriage.

Included is a forward by George.G. Harper in plain English that places Nieland's book in its context as a glimpse into an ethnic enclave that has since been forever transformed by the passage of time. This title comes recommended for anyone interested in the story of Dutch Americans, their language and the landscape of a culture transformed.
