Fear gripped their souls as the roaring waves of the angry sea relentlessly pounded their ship. Carsten Schuck, clinging to his wife and children, prayed that they would live to see the beautiful new America. Surely God did not bring them this far to drown in the belly of the boat. Thousands of his countrymen had made this journey before him. America was calling him with a chance for freedom, opportunity, territory to explore, and a new beginning for his children with a future full of promise. 'We must survive! God, please keep us safe!' he cried. Little did Carsten know that fleeing to America was just the beginning of the many hardships, heartaches, harsh realities, and tender, rewarding moments that his family would face as they reestablished themselves in a new land. He and his descendants would help forge the way and be a part of creating the greatest country in the world. Based on the true story of coauthor Robert L. Shook's ancestors, A Journey in Courage captures the incredible legacy of the Schuck family, a family connected by their faith in God and their deep love for their country and one another. This fascinating account will treat you to a remarkable three-dimensional trip through time and leave a lasting impression on your heart.
