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. He was delighted by the wide variety of landscapes and people he encountered and recorded everything for the benefit of readers back home in Poland. Whether it is describing his visit to Niagara Falls (where all the staff had left for a funeral) or explaining the National Park system (admirable, but watch out for rattlesnakes), Buszczyński had an opinion on everything. In this new edition from Kabaty Press, they have now been translated into English for the very first time.

Includes a foreword by Dominic A. Pacyga, Professor Emeritus at Columbia College Chicago and author of American Warsaw: The Rise Fall, and Rebirth of Polish Chicago.
