Arriving at Ellis Island by Dale Anderson

The huge influx of immigrants to the United States from the late 1800s to the early 1900s was one of those events that shaped the nation's future. This book tells the story of the Europeans who arrived in that period, many of them to escape poverty and oppression. It takes a detailed look at the history and processes of the Ellis Island immigration station and at what their experiences on the island meant to new arrivals. It also examines the troubles and triumphs that awaited a generation of immigrants who would have a significant impact on the modern American character and society.
