The Legacy of Faith: The Journey is a story about the travels of four families from central Europe in the mid-nineteenth century to Guttenberg, Iowa. During this time, millions of German immigrants came to America due to the oppressive government, repeated wars, and yearly flooding that continued to ruin crops and lives. The Tschohl family, Mathias Rohner, George Spielbauer, and Mary Pankraz all had their own reasons for fleeing to America from 1855 through 1871, and one of them hoped to leave the secret of their past behind them as they started over in the new world.

About the Author
Brian Spielbauer grew up on a farm in northeast Iowa. It sat on a hill overlooking Johles Hollow, about two miles north of Osterdock and seven miles west of Guttenberg. He is the sixth of seven children born to Frank and Jackie (Wessels) Spielbauer. Brian, like all the sons and daughters of Frank and Jackie, played sports growing up. Unlike the rest, he was also in high school plays and was in the band. He also had a vast imagination that allowed him to escape, at times, the bustle of a busy home to withdraw into a different world, one where he took a prominent place in all activities. He graduated from Guttenberg (now Clayton Ridge) High School in 1991, from William Penn University in 1996, and finally from Bemidji State University in 2002. He taught Kindergarten through eighth-grade Physical Education and Science, coached high school sports (but mainly basketball), and then he coached and taught at William Penn for ten years. He then was a college athletic director for seven years; two of them at Presentation College in South Dakota and finally five years at Central Methodist University in Missouri. He married his very supportive and loving wife, Jennifer (Bryant) Spielbauer, in 2001. They live in Fayette, Missouri, with their two wonderful daughters Sydney and Allie.
