About the Author
Born into a German American community in Des Plaines, Illinois, where his great-grandfather established the town's first hotel, David Koehler went on to earn a BA in Philosophy and History from Illinois and a BD from Yale. Now, retired from corporate employment, he writes history. His first book, Bakers, Brewers and Bricklayers: The History of Everyday German Peasants Vol. 1, 100 BCE-1450 was a finalist for the Midwest Book Award. He lives in Minneapolis with his wife.
Reviews

"With fluid and accessible writing and thorough documentation, Koehler brings to life a remarkable variety of dimensions of the lives of the German people. We learn about family life, marriage, and religion, important political and military developments, clothing, diet, and housing, entertainment, village organization, famines and plagues, class and political structures, the growing authority of the Catholic church, medical practice, and much more. These discussions are specific, succinct, and informative. David Koehler's efforts to learn about his ancestors have given us a most readable and enlightening social history of Germany between 100 BCE and 1450."

-John Aram, retired professor of Organizational Behavior and Managment Policy
