  1. I am interested in the Susann Bosshard-Kalin book “Westward”. As an American (whose paternal grandfather immigrant homesteader )living in Switzerland for the past seven years this book review in an in-flight magazine caught my attention and interest. My local bookstore in the US was unable to locate this book for me.
    I would appreciate your help in ordering a copy.

    I was born near Monroe and my ancesters came from Bilton, Glarus. I saw a mention of the 2008 article in the Review on “The planting of New Bilton”. How can I purchase a copy? Edwin Blum edblum@centurylink.net
