To understand [broadsides] fully, Wellenreuther systematically reconstructs Pennsylvania's print culture, the material conditions of life, the problems German settlers faced, the demands their communities made on the individual settlers, the complications to be overcome, and the needs to be satisfied. He shows how these broadsides provided advice, projections, and comment on phases of life from cradle to grave. Hardcover. Penn State University Press, 2013. 352 pages.
