Star Rating: ★★★★

The United States has long been seen as a melting pot – a place where refugees from all the nations could come to seek a better life. Many did come, and many found the life they were seeking – others came and were turned away or saw their dreams collapse around them. But almost all of them found their first experience of America in one location – Ellis Island.

In this book you’ll learn not only about the dangerous sea voyages undertaken by immigrants and their arrival at Ellis Island, but about the history of the island itself, the place that made or broke dreams of millions.

Conclusion. An excellent resource – better than Ellis Island.
