              Thousands of Macedonians called Montana their home during the first few decades of the 20th century. They left their manufacturing jobs in Illinois, Indiana and Ohio and flocked into Montana, where they joined thousands of others laboring under the open sky to create one of Ameri...ca's most extensive railroad networks. For many of these migrant workers, their stay in Montana was brief - they eventually returned to the Midwest or to their native Macedonia. However, some Macedonians remained in Big Sky Country forever. Big Sky Macedonians explores the immigration of Macedonians to Montana in two parts. The first part analyzes data and trends for 645 Macedonians who ventured into Montana for employment, while the second part journeys through the lives of those Macedonians who sealed their fate in Montana. Sinadinoski offers a comprehensive and personal overview of a segment of Macedonian-American history that has hitherto been largely ignored.

              Riots. Vendettas. Blackmail. Murder. For thousands of Macedonians who settled in Granite City and its environs during the first decades of the 20th century, life in the New World was in many ways the same as in the Old World. These Macedonians may have escaped their impoverished ...and enslaved homeland for prospects of prosperity and freedom in America, but Macedonia followed them across the ocean to the saloons, factories, and boarding houses of Granite City.The First Macedonian Colony explores the Macedonian immigrant experience in Granite City during the early 20th century. It examines the monopoly that the wealthy Macedonian bankers and businessmen held over the local Macedonians; details the political and ethnic rivalries of the Macedonians, Greeks and Bulgarians; and chronicles ordinary Macedonians as they integrated into American society all while preserving their Macedonian identity and culture. This little-known story of America's first Macedonian settlement carries readers on a rousing voyage that will challenge all preconceived notions about the history of Macedonian immigration to America.
