    2 thoughts on “The Journey Takers

    1. Leslie Albrecht Huber has the talent for making history come alive. Her non-fiction book The Journey Takers is definitely not a dry account of her ancestors but an appealing narrative that blends her own life with that of her past relatives, making this book feel like a novel. It was a real pleasure to read, the pages turning quickly as I was transported into the arduous, interesting, and exciting lives of common people who became immigrants and started a new life in a strange and hard land. It [...]

    2. Anyone who thinks that family history is dull, boring, and lifeless obviously hasn't read The Journey Takers. Ms. Huber weaves the lives of her ancestors seamlessly into the events of her life as she is learning about them, going to school, and raising a family."Ordinariness" is a theme that runs throughout the book. Because her ancestors are like so many others of their socioeconomic class from Sweden, Germany, and England in the mid- to late-1800s, the records about their specific lives are re [...]

    3. I really enjoyed about 85% of this book. Along with her personal story of tracing her relatives, Huber weaves in many interesting facts about the living conditions and the political and social climate that her ancestors lived in. Her research seems solid, and the book read very quickly.This book is also good because it gives an idea of what kind of work and research is involved in doing genealogical work. She talks about both successes and dead ends. It was also heartwarming to see how many perf [...]

    4. Through genealogical efforts, the author journeys back into multiple branches of her family history, and going so far as visiting places where her ancestors lived in Sweden, Germany, and England. Additionally, she just doesn't visit, but tries to understand her fore-bearer's lives during the times when they lived. Eventually, she turns her attention to her American ancestors who settled in the American west and, through-out her quest, she intersperses stories of her own life and her growing fami [...]

    5. I've really enjoyed reading this book. It's my idea of a wonderful example of narrative non-fiction. She tied real family history into the realities of her present life showing that the past really is interwoven into our lives. She pays a touching tribute to her ancestors who immigrated to a world unknown to them, America. This book really inspires a love for past generations and may ignite your passion for family history. I definately recommend this book. Thank you, Leslie for letting MMW revie [...]

    6. Leslie has created a masterpiece--a scrupulously researched and documented history of her paternal line which brings ancestors to life and weaves together her own quest in finding them with their ancestral quest for Zion. The honesty and diligence of her search, as well as the exciting discoveries she made along the way, are impressive and page-turning. Her own growth from college student to mother are chronicled and have echoes in the stories she tells. This is a treasure for her own family as [...]

    7. I received this book from one of the "first-read" give-aways. It is probably not the type of book that I would have pulled from the bookshelves to read, but I found it quite interesting. The Journey Takers was a book about the author's ancestors. It was packed with historical facts about Germany, Sweden and England(which I enjoyed reading about), but the author gave some great insights into her ancestors' personal lives. She also made wonderful connections to how we, in our everyday journeys th [...]

    8. 3.5 stars. Interesting story of one woman's quest to discover her family history (and she also happens to be my friend and neighborway to go, Leslie!) The historical information is fascinating and well-researched. The stories of her ancestors with her own personal life woven in are well done. I didn't love the small snippets where she imagined episodes in her ancestor's lives. Otherwise great.

    9. This book tells about the author's paternal ancestors: Albrechts and related lines form Germany; Karsti Nilsdotter and her family from Sweden; and the Harrises, initially from England, but who journeyed to Utah via Australia. Some of their stories are more interesting than others as some have more details available. I think the author did an especially good job of telling the tragic story of Edmond Harris's family.

    10. I thoroughly enjoyed this book about Leslie's family history trips and research intermingled with her life as a wife and mother of 4 children. It was an inspiring book to me to see that one can take scant records and truly form a story of what their ancestors lives might have been like. It also inspired me to not wait to talk to the living relatives I have who knew my great-grandparents before it's too late.

    11. I may be a tad bit biased, since one of my oldest friends ever is the author, but I honestly loved this book. I have always had an intense fascination with personal histories and this book is full of them, but it also weaves in Leslie's (the author's) own feelings and struggles as she researches her ancestors and finds that though they are different in so many ways, they are connected as well. It is beautifully written and I loved it!!

    12. For anyone who is interested in where they came from and delving into their family history this is a must read. This book was well written and engages the reader from start to finish. Leslie takes us along on her own personal journey to find her ancestors and the places they lived. It made me want to hop on the plane and search out my own ancestral villages and inspired me to want to write my own family story.

    13. This book wasn't quite what I thought it would bed while I liked it, it was also a little slowI love family history and reading about it and I loved reading about her need, and compulsion to do it. But this was an easy book for me to put down and go do something else. She did a great job of documenting things and of telling what was fact, and what was imagined. I am so envious of her travels to the homes of her ancestors! Glad I read it, yes

    14. Anyone interested in discovering their personal heritage needs to read this book. The author has such a passion for family history and her journey to discover her ancestors was extremely inspiring. I loved how the author blended her own story with the stories of her ancestors- whom I found surprisingly intriguing to read about. Very inspiring and well worth the read!

    15. Loved this book. Leslie Albrecht Huber takes a journey into her ancestors past, at least the ones who emigrated from England, Sweden and Germany. Well documented, yet read like a novel. It made me want to go to all the hometowns of my ancestors.

    16. Not only a well-written and interesting story of Leslie Albrecht Huber's genealogy but an inspiration to other genealogists' on how to make those past lives that we research come alive with social history. I would recommend this to anyone interested in genealogy.

    17. If this book was about my ansestors, I woud have given it a five star. The author did an excellent job describing the lives of her ansestors and also talking about her own life problems.
