IMPRESSIONS OF AMERICA
Konstanty Buszczyński (trans. Kasia Beresford)
When Konstanty Buszczyński travelled to America in 1910, it was the start of a love affair that would culminate in his appointment as the first Polish Consul of New York. Impressions of America is his account of his early voyages, and his musings on the place of the United States in the world. Buszczyński’s lively writing touches on many different aspects of American life, from analysis of the political and economic climate to comments on the nuances of ‘cow-boys’ and a visit to Niagara Falls.
Impressions of America was published in Polish in 1916, and has never before been translated into English. It is a valuable primary source regarding the United States around the turn of the last century, as well as a record of contemporary attitudes in both the United States and in Europe. For anyone with an interest in American history, it is an entertaining and illuminating read.
