American Travels of a Dutch Hobo American Travels of a Dutch Hobo

by Leeflang, Gerard

In 1923, Dutch seaman Gerard Leeflang fell in love with America and soon was an illegal alien. He had become entranced with what he had seen of New York City. He jumped ship and absorbed the excitement of the cities and jobs, and both urban and rural American cultures. His impressions are those of an observant foreigner who would have loved to put down his roots but couldn’t....The book explains why. Written with a bit of a Dutch twist, Leeflang offers an interesting view of life during the 1920s.
