Summary

The United States is truly a nation of immigrants, or as the poet Walt Whitman once said, a "nation of nations." For more than 200 years, people of diverse nationalities and religions from all over the world have come to America's shores seeking a new life. Their story is the story of America. Spanning the time from when the Europeans first came to the New World to the present day, the Immigration to the United States set vividly portrays the immigrant experience throughout American history.

Beginning with a brief preface to the set written by general editor Robert Asher that discusses some of the broad reasons why people came to the New World, both as explorers and settlers, each book’s narrative highlights the themes, people, places, and events that were important to each immigrant group. In an engaging, informative manner, each volume describes what members of a group found when they arrived in the United States as well as where they settled. Historical information and background on the various communities present life as it was lived at the time they arrived. The books then trace the group’s history in the United States. Final chapters discuss the current status of each group, bringing the reader fully up to date.

Each volume includes photographs and illustrations such as passports and other artifacts of immigration, as well as quotes from original source materials. Box features highlight special topics or people, and each book is rounded out with a glossary, timeline, further reading list, and index. Perfect for school reports as well as anyone looking for a brief introduction to this important topic, the Immigration to the United States set is an invaluable tool for young students.
