Reviews - What do customers think about The Newlanders?

The Newlanders  Aug 16, 2001
I enjoyed this well-written & well-researched historical novel about indentured servants from Gemany. It tells of their difficult ocean voyage & their hard work & adventures when they reached Pennsylvania. I learned a lot about life in early America & fascinating details about the work the colonists did & exactly how they did it.

I enjoyed The Newlanders for the vivid account of adventures as well as for the immersion in colonial every-day (& not so every-day) life.

The Newlanders--A wonderful adventure story  Aug 10, 2001
Olin Johnson's historical novel THE NEWLANDERS is a good adventure story well told. The story of young David Jansohn, kin no doubt to Johnson, as his life forces him to travel from eighteenth-century Germany to America as an indentured servant is complicated by realistic problems. He comes into contact with men and women who become worthy friends, those who deal with him only for their own profit or pleasure, and those who are oblivious to anything other than their own lives.

Johnson, a computer-science professor, is detailed and accurate in his portrayal of the fascinating tale. The protagonist, David Jansohn, is a bright young man who is easy to like. He has a basically moral approach to life, compromised only slightly by his attraction to beautiful women. But he faces the hardships brought about by his economic and political powerlessness with the kind of personal integrity, skill, and fortitude that allowed our forefathers to succeed in the new world. And David's love of beautiful women finds satisfying fruition in his relationship with the wonderful Catherina.

I look forward to the sequel Olin Johnson promises soon: the further adventures of the newlanders.
