Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
They left behind poverty, famine and oppressive landlords, sailed steerage under abhorrent conditions and arrived in America to find they were not wanted. This compelling narrative follows the Irish from their native land to their arrival in America and speaks of the challenges they faced in mainstreaming into a new culture and the vast influence of the Catholic Church and the Irish Emigrant Society in that transition process. Once established, the Irish were instrumental in the labor force, building canals and railroads, as domestics, and in the garment industry; their accomplishments are detailed here as well as their influence on politics, notably their service during the Civil War. This concise examination of Irish immigrants concludes by looking at their assimilation, with the gradual loss of their identity to today's resurgence of interest in all things Irish. Extensive research and incisive writing are key, and the reader should not be put off by the book's utilitarian format. It relies on primary source documents for first person accounts that add an anecdotal and human dimension. Sidebars give brief synopses of the work and influence of the Molly Maguires, Mother Jones, St. Patrick's Battalion and more. Deeply moving for a work of nonfiction, this should produce in the reader a healthy respect for those who overcame so much and contributed so richly to the fabric of American life and culture. There are extensive notes and a bibliography. 2003, Lucent Books,
