To most Jewish immigrants New York was America. Not many ventured as far as North Dakota at the turn of the century. Sophie Trupin writes of her father and other Jewish farmers who came to the northern plains: "Each was a Moses in his own right, leading his people out of the land of bondage--out of czarist Russia, out of anti-Semitic Poland, out of Romania and Galicia. Each was leading his family to a promised land; only this was no land flowing with milk and honey--no land of olive trees and vineyards." Dakota Diaspora adds a little-known chapter to the saga of the settlement of America. In a series of vignettes Sophie Tmpin recalls her childhood in "Nordokota," where her father built a sod house and farmed a quarter-section of rocky land before opening a butcher shop in the town of Wing. Against that background plays out the perennial conflict between her father; who had escaped the violent anti-Semitism of his native Russia and found here a man's freedom and dignity, and her mother; who felt "trapped, betrayed and helpless in this desolate land," far from her roots in the Old Country. But out of the struggle to bring in the harvest, survive the blizzards, and maintain a kosher home, a warm family life developed, as well as a sense of community with Jewish neighbors on scattered homesteads.… (mere)

Sophie Trupin and I sprang from the same Eastern European Jewish roots. Her vividly personal recollections suggest that there are two million variations on Jewish flight to the United States between 1881 and 1924. Through the perplexed eyes and emotions of a Russian-Jewish girl, Trupin relives her family's flight from Old Country constraints -- Jewish and governmental -- to homesteading in alien and relatively empty North Dakota. The antagonism that erupts between her delicate and conventional mother and her vigorous, progressive father does not abate. Nor does the hard work for which rocky black soil denies them a livelihood. Sophie guides her reader indoors (with stories of Shabbos challah and candles on the table, and Yiddish -- cacophonous, accusative, tender) and outdoors (where blizzards, droughts, and insects destroy their crops). Finally, alternatives exhausted, they move to a small town, where her father runs a store, the family engages with Jewish and non-Jewish neighbors, and the children excel in public schools. As to whether her father's ill-fated romance with the land resulted in deeper and more rapid acculturation, we may only speculate. In retrospect, Trupin views his quest as a desperate effort to free them from an oppressive and outmoded past. Which by extreme measures he did.
