Coming to America: The Story of Immigrationby Ellen H. Hopkins, Margaret Sanfilippo, Margaret Sanfilippo
Over 20 million people left their homes in Europe. They came to America between 1892 and 1924. Most of them had no jobs waiting for them. They brought little money and few possessions. They knew that once they arrived, they would probably never again see their homeland or the people they left behind. What would make people leave everything? What would make them travel far across an ocean? What would make them start a new life in a strange country? Lena Martini and her family were among those immigrants. Their story represents what most immigrants encountered on their journey.
