We're Czechs based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Born into the Czech community of Snook, Texas, in the early 1900s, Skrabanek tells the tale of growing up Czech and how different that life was from the 'Americans' who surrounded them. The book shows a close-knit community that had its own ways of doing things. He writes about church services held in Czech, courting rituals, SPJST and other fraternal organizations, kolaches and polkas. If you have any Czech blood in you, then this book will seem familiar and ring true.
