Video interviews with residents or former residents of the Emmons, Logan, and McIntosh Counties area settled by Germans from Russia. These interviews focus on how families fed themselves in a time before or shortly after electricity was available to farms.
These stories, memories and recipes about canning, cooking, collecting cow chips, threshing and more are heartwarming and tear-jerking at the same time. The interviews were collected with funds from a grant from the State Historical Society of North Dakota.
