Book cover

This expat guide is based on the German Way Expat Blog.

Why expats will want to get this book:
Expat life in Germany can include glorious outings to Alpine castles, bratwurst and beer in the local Biergarten, and weekly shopping trips to the farmer’s market on the colorful local square. But it also can mean isolation, displacement, unemployment, and exclusion. With blunt honesty the authors address these issues and many more. How do I deal with homesickness? How can I make friends in my new country? How do I deal with being an accompanying spouse? These are vital matters that rarely get covered in your standard expat “how to” guidebook.

Children’s Picture Book

The Sagebrush Singers by Herb Kernecker, illustrated by James Watts


This children’s picture book is based on the classic German fairy tale “The Bremen Town Musicians.” PUBLISHER: Humboldt American Press
