Island of Hope: The Story of Ellis Island and the Journey to America by Martin Sandler


The moving story of immigration to America as told through the passionate voices and stories of those who passed through Ellis Island.

On January 1, 1892, a fifteen-year-old Irish girl named Annie Moore made history when she became the first person to be processed at a new immigrant station at Ellis Island in New York Harbor. In the next 62 years more than 12 million other immigrants would follow.

Millions of others would be "pulled" into the United States by the promise of new opportunities.

Once they arrived at Ellis, they were put through the traumatic experience
