The Immigrant Experience in the Words of Those Who Lived It
Praise For American Mosaic: The Immigrant Experience in the Words of Those Who Lived It…
"A triumph. . . . Consistently fascinating and consistently rich in significant details about the great and complex story of immigration to the United States and adaptation to American life."
—New York Times Book Review
"Powerful, dramatic, fascinating. . . . You have the feeling as you read across the extraordinary breadth of time, nationality and experience represented here that you are getting a grip on the real America: thrilling, depressing, frightening, gentle, crass, confusing, endearing, impersonal, vulgar, idealistic. In short, as diverse as the millions who have experienced and enriched it."
“A powerful collection of oral histories which captures the immense drama and the amazing expanse of the American immigrant experience. Their vivid stories of love, adventure, tragedy, and triumph depict the human side immigration and reveal the rich ethnic heritage that lies in the background of every American.”
—Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society Quarterly
