Review:

This book is a collection of first-hand accounts of the experiences and conditions surrounding the emigration of women from other countries to the United States during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This first-hand narrative format engages the reader and opens up a world of events and encounters that I have not found in any other collection. The book is full of information and insights into the lives of women emigrating from many countries, including the struggles of unmarried Bohemian women as they successfully strive for social acceptance as single parents, and the frightening experiences of Golda Meir as a child leaving Czarist Russia in 1906. It is an excellent work whose narrative, story-telling nature makes it interesting to read. Joan K. Smith, Loyola University"
