Russian Voices on the Kennebec: The Story of Maine's Unlikely Colony


 Product Description

Author: Robert S. Jaster

Format: Paperback

Pages: 170

Russian Voices on the Kennebec tells the story of an extraordinary and colorful colony of Russian Orthodox immigrants who settled in Maine's Kennebec Valley in the 1950s. The original wave of immigrants, some of whom were veterans of the White Russian Army which fought the Bolsheviks in the 1920s, were joined by other Eastern Europeans: Ukrainians, Belorussians, and others, all of whom had tales to tell author Robert Jaster as he interviewed them for this book. Maine's first Russian settlement soon became the largest rural Russian-speaking community in the United States.. "This book, illustrated with photographs taken during the heyday of the settlement, is the first to be published about these vital settlers and the life of their historically unique colony. At the core of the book are personal stories of individual immigrants, told in their own words, at times passionate and moving, at times humorous and self-disparaging.
