Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: For most readers this book will have a double interest: the interest attaching to a picture of Polish life, and the general human interest inseparable from characters like those presented in the narrative of Pan Stanislav's fortunes.

The Poles form a part of the great Slav race, which has played so important a role in the world's history already, and which is destined to play a far more important one yet in the future.

The argument involved in the career and meditations of Pan Stanislav is of interest to every person in civilized society; it is an argument presented so clearly, and reinforced with such pointed examples, that neither comment nor explanation is needed.

Jeremiah Curtin translated this authorized, unabridged edition from the Polish.

About: From the INTRODUCTORY STATEMENT: THE title of this book in the original is Rodzina Polanieckich (The Family of the Polanyetskis); “Children of the Soil” has been substituted, because of the difficulty of the Polish title for American and English readers, because the Polanyetskis are called children of the soil in the text of the volume, and because all the other characters are children of the soil in the same sense.
