It makes you feel connected to the roots of our country. Good People is the story of German immigrants who fled “repatriation” in Russia as Lenin stoked revolution. They traveled by ox cart to the port of Bremen, by ship to the Gulf of Mexico and on foot to Vera Cruz, Mexico, where Russia and Mexico sought to colonize and farm swamp land reclaimed with dikes and levees. Bad farmland and malaria led them up through Texas to Oklahoma where John Fisher homesteaded, became an American and built a new life for his family from pure sweat and grit seasoned with church suppers and traveling carnivals- his free will tested by the Ku Klux Klan- his soul humbled by the Depression- and his love for fellow man epitomized by the “Widow Wagon.”
