Van Raalte's Vision: A History of Holland, Michigan is a fresh and comprehensive history of the city from its beginnings to the increasingly diverse community it is today.The three volumes that comprise this book discuss topics such as the coming of the Dutch, the Americans who chose to live among them, schools, grassroots politics, the effects of the world wars and the Great Depression, city institutions, downtown renewal, and social and cultural life in Holland. Robert Swierenga also draws attention to founder Albertus Van Raalte's particular role in forming the city -- everything from planning streets to establishing churches and schools, nurturing industry, and encouraging entrepreneurs.Lavishly illustrated with over nine hundred photographs and based on meticulous research, this book offers the most detailed history of Holland, Michigan available.
