About the Book
Sweet Home Nekoma is the true story of a family who immigrated to the United States from Ireland in the 19th Century. They worked in steel mills and textile factories in Pennsylvania, fought in the Civil War, made the courageous move to Kansas to become homesteaders and endured the dust bowl and the Great Depression. This history and the enchanting family home in Rush County, KS have captivated following generations of the family. The book is a compilation of family photos, diaries, memoirs and genealogical research. It is beautifully illustrated with original pastel paintings by Matt Rezac.
