This rewarding, engrossing volume documents the diverse mosaic of America in the words of the people from many lands, who for more than a century have made our country what it is today. It distills the larger, hot-topic issue of national immigration down to the personal level of the lives of those who actually lived it.
Barry Moreno is an historian at New York's famous Ellis Island Museum, site of America's most important early-twentieth-century immigration center.
