In this richly evocative collection ten men and women of European, Latin
American, and Asian backgrounds tell of their immigrant experiences. They range from a Shetland Islander who sailed to Virginia as an indentured servant before the American Revolution to a Vietnamese refugee family living in Chicago in the 1980s.
Thomas Dublin presents diaries, letters, reminiscences, and oral history in a volume that memorably reflects the diversity and commonalties of two centuries of U.S. immigration. His introduction places the primary sources in a broad interpretive framework and offers readers an overview of the place of immigration in national development.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading these first-person accounts of immigrants coming to America. We're using this book in a class I'm taking, but it is something I would pick up and read regardless of being assigned. قراءة التقييم بأكمله
