De Zwaan : the true story of America's authentic Dutch windmill

In 1965 the windmill De Zwaan, the last windmill to leave the Netherlands, came to its new home in Holland, Michigan.  It has recently been restored and is not only a popular tourist attraction, but also a working windmill.   The book’s author, Alisa Crawford, is De Zwaan’s miller and has written the story of how the windmill came to Holland.
