Milt Ost has recently released the second book of his “Tumbleweeds Burning” series. A brilliantly orchestrated sequel, “Tumbleweeds Burning Book 2” (published by Xlibris) weaves history with fiction to recreate the story of a German immigrant family who face overwhelming odds in their search for home, a new life and freedom.

“Tumbleweeds Burning Book 2” follows the Oster family, a German family who moved to Russia hoping to find a better life. Unfortunately, things do not turn out well for John Oster and his wife, Ricka, and they face bitter persecution in Russia. Their children flee to America, accepting the government’s offer of a free homestead on the great prairies of the American heartland. The offer, however, comes with a hefty price tag. In the midst of the strange, new world, the Osters once again find themselves struggling against both natural and man-made calamities including violent dust storms, droughts, witchcraft and political unrest.

Ost, the compelling and evocative narrator, takes readers alongside his richly drawn characters on a journey filled with unforgettable twists and turns. In writing this story, the author has given voice to the millions of immigrants who had to overcome great obstacles. Ultimately, “Tumbleweeds Burning Book 2” is a story of hope, survival and the difficult decisions that are sometimes necessary to achieve freedom.
