This wonderful anthology recreates the past from the voices of those who struggled to adapt to the "new world". Facing such adversity as assimilation, prejudice, poverty, homesickness, and identity, these newcomers were able to persevere and their inspiring stories are full of hope, faith, and conviction. Gathering together narratives from the 18th to the 20th century, this one-of-a-kind collection provides both a historical and uniquely personal perspective on the struggles and successes of immigrants--and illuminates for readers the difficult, rewarding experience of becoming an American.
