Inhaltsangabe: The Library of Congress, located in Wash., D.C., is often called ''the storehouse of our national memory,'' and is home to the largest collection of knowledge on earth. Here is a fascinating look into the past at some of the most important events in our country's history through the pictures stored in the Library's vast archives. It shows what it was like for people to leave their homelands behind in search of a better life in the U.S., and the struggles they went through once they arrived on these shores through: quotes from immigrants' letters and diaries; vintage photos; posters; and paintings. ''A breathtaking look back through time at the challenges and triumphs of the millions of immigrants who have journeyed to our country.'' Ages 8 and up. Illustrations.

Klappentext:

Millions of people from all over the world left their homelands in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to come to the United States. Their journeys were often long and perilous, but to these huddled masses, the sight of the Statue of Liberty signified hope for a new beginning in their new home-- America. Whether settling in city tenements or heading west for life on the frontier, these immigrants toiled to achieve the lives they had dreamed about. Their experiences helped to shape national identity and heritage.

Over one hundred vintage photographs, posters, and paintings from the archives of the Library of COngress-- often called "the storehouse of the national memory"-- remind us of what becoming American meant to millions of people.
