Born into the Czech community of Snook, Texas, in the early twentieth century, Robert L. Skrabanek describes with warmth and familiarity how the immigrants and their families made their heritage a part of their daily lives. We're Czechs, first published in 1988, is an engaging account of life in a close-knit community that clearly considered it a privilege to be Czech--a privilege to be cherished and passed on to the next generation. In these pages readers can sense the community spirit that came from attending worship services held in the Czech language, choosing friends and spouses from the Czech community, setting up cooperatives and fraternal organizations, working the land in traditional ways, baking kolaches, and dancing the polka. " . . . a very informative and entertaining book on ethnic history couched in a very personal, informal, and folksy style."--Southwestern Historical Quarterly "Everyone will enjoy his accounts of rural life as seen and interpreted by a growing boy--the work and how hard it was, the food and how good it tasted, . . . the fun of community get-togethers, the demands and rewards of school, the reality of low income, and beyond all, the exhilaration and excitement of everyday life."--Rural Sociology
