Utopia – Revisiting a German State in America is bilingual, in German and English, and the story of 500 immigrants to America from all parts of Germany in 1834. After Gottfried Duden’s Report on a Journey to the Western States of North America, published in Germany in 1829, 120,000 Germans would emigrate to the U.S. in the 1830s. Over one-third of those would choose Missouri, presumably because to Duden’s advice.
