Ten-year old Stepha and nine-year old Vanya are Russian boys swept up in a world with little regard for children. World war, revolution, epidemic, starvation and more have forced upon them a maturity beyond their years. Armed only with their resolve and promises from their dead mother and absent father, the two must find a way to survive in a world not of their making. Their only hope for survival is in a distant land called America.
"Slogans" is the third book in a trilogy following the saga of two villages: Hutawa, Byelorus and Rockdale, Illinois. "Slogans" follows "Ikons" and "Banners" and covers the period in Russian-American history from 1918 to 1933.
Steve Pribish was born in Joliet, Illinois of Russian immigrants and learned stories of "years ago" first hand from his father and grandfather. After college, Steve spent thirty-three years working for the United States government monitoring the Soviet Union. He was deeply involved in Russian culture and made prolonged trips into European Russia. "Ikons" and "Banners" are the result of several generations of experience. Steve is the author of over two hundred government reports and has written for "Home and Away" and "Videomaker" magazines, and several Midwestern newspapers. His short story, "There Will Be Crosses" won first place in the Dayton Daily News Short Story Contest in 1997.
