Library Journal - Library Journal
For the millions of immigrants who entered the United States through Ellis Island, this volume represents a visual compilation of once-in-a-lifetime memories. There are literally hundreds of photos from the Ellis Island Immigration Museum, which opened last September. The illustrations are complemented by an inviting narrative detailing the experiences of immigrants in their own words. Divided into four sections, the volume also traces the history of Ellis Island from an immigrant landmark to a national museum. Highly recommended for all libraries.--Boyd Childress, Auburn Univ. Lib., Ala.
