Hagedorn provides a fascinating glimpse life as the son of wealthy German immigrants in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Though his childhood was happy and privileged, tensions between the old life and the new were ever present, and eventually tore the family in two with the onset of World War I. I particularly recommend this book to readers who, like me, have Germans in their family tree; I found it had a lot to teach me about my ancestry.
