Zur Stadt die Deinen Namen trägt
by Martin Nordegg
As a souvenir of this journey, that actually started in Toronto and ended at the Pacific Coast, Martin Nordegg wrote a story for his daughter which describes in loving detail their adventures on this journey, creating a vivid picture of the country they crossed and a way of life that has already faded into history.
Photographs taken by Martin Nordegg enrich the story a loving father wrote for "my beloved daughter Marcelle."
About the Author: John Koch of Edmonton, born in the same German province as Nordegg, came upon this manuscript while researching material for a biography of the German entrepreneur (Martin Nordegg: The Uncommon Immigrant). Mr. Koch in a foreword and epilogue supplies necessary background; his wife Maria has deftly translated Nordegg's story into English which evokes both the original German and the era.
To the Town that Bears Your Name is available in English and in German.
It's an engaging trip to another time and into our Alberta heritage.
