Moving from one state to another and from one country to another can be an exciting and challenging experience. Fifty-four individuals tell their stories about how they came to the state of Texas and specifically the Texas Hill Country to work, live or retire. These people share their life stories from childhood to the present time, and tell why they left their home states or countries to search for the American dream. Some left extremely difficult conditions. Others left out of concern for their children and conditions that would affect their early development. Still others were attracted to the Texas Hill Country's beauty, mystique and its friendly people. They knew many opportunities would be available to them. They brought with them a positive work ethic, a spirit of adventure and entrepreneurship. They learned the language, its history, the music and dances and how to live as real Texans.
