ELLIS ISLAND: GATEWAY OF HOPE
By John Burdick
8 7/8 x 11 3/4 in. 128 pages. Hardcover. Over 120 full-color and archival illustrations. One half of the population of the United States today can trace their ancestry to immigrants processed in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty at New York's Ellis Island. Illuminated by portraits of the new arrivals themselves, this volume brings the immigrant experience to life with eloquent historical views of Ellis Island whose halls echoed with the voices of the millions who passed through on their way to build America's future. A complete history of this great national landmark is presented, highlighting various aspects of the whole process. With 123 full-color and archival photographs, this beautiful volume captures the spirit of the gateway to America and serves as a touching reminder of the brave "huddled masses" who left their homes for a new nation.
