Artist and Craftsman Copper Metalsmith, Industrial Arts
by Dan Pierce with Jenny Benjamin
This story is a historical fiction based on some of the things learned about one
family’s emigration to the United States in the early 1900’s. The general historical
details are not entirely accurate, but the overall basis is sound. It is also a story of a
person’s life, again fictionalized, not to embellish nor diminish, but to reflect some of
the human experiences we all had, are having, and will have.
We all stand on the backs of our ancestors, those whose sacrifices, triumphs,
tragedies, and efforts made it possible to live a life here in America that many people
can still only dream of. We all have a story of the ancestors we are grateful to and
of how we got here. This is mine.
HOW WE GOT HERE is available at Amazon Books
