Excerpt from In Amerika: A German Reader, American History, Legends and Anecdotes
America is the subject of this German reader. Its prepa ration resulted from recent suggestions: the United States Bureau of Education 1 emphasized the importance of the German language for America's economic and scientific de ve10pment; and the editorials of metropolitan newspapers called for new German text-books. It became evident from the latter, that accounts of our own country should pro vide desirable materials for studying the foreign language.
The student, beginning to study German, will find here some distinctive advantages. In the American tales appear peoples, customs and atmosphere already more or less familiar to him. The accounts of our life, in the colonial, the frontier and the present times, will appeal to his national feeling. The selections, one and all, have been made to stimulate his interest. Everything should encourage him to concentrate his eflort upon the language.
