'Dreams of America'

People from many backgrounds settled in McPherson County, Kansas. Yet, there is no doubt that the immigration of two large groups - the Swedes and the Mennonites- had a defining impact on our history. ‘Dreams of America’ explores their journeys to build new homes in a new land. They were not unlike other pioneers in some ways. Yet these two groups forged their own unique paths. With faith, courage and a strong sense of their own identity, they fulfilled their dreams and left an inspiring legacy.
