"WE ARE ONE FAMILY. Jesteśmy jedną rodziną. POLISH IMMIGRATION TO SHERIDAN COUNTY, Wyoming 1890–1920" is the book written by our guests from 2014: Karen Ballek and Leon Washut.

"Their book, We Are One Family highlights stories of ethnic Poles who immigrated between 1890 and 1920. Many were Polish Górale (highlanders) who came from villages that dotted the mountains and foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. Although they adapted to a new life, deeply held beliefs and traditions from their rural Polish culture became firmly rooted in Sheridan County. The stories of the immigrants’ villages in the old country, their journeys to America, and how they built a new life in Wyoming are tributes to strength, character, and the triumph of survival. The title of the book, We Are One Family (Jesteśmy jedną rodziną) was chosen to reflect the fact that ethnic Poles immigrated from a variety of areas but their experience living and working in the mining camps brought them together as one family."
