From the Back Cover:

[back cover]
Although the Italian-born explorer Amerigo Vespucci gave his name to the New World, it was not until the California gold rush of 1849 that Italian immigration began in earnest, with more than four million Italians arriving between 1880 and 1924, many from the grinding poverty of the "mezzogiorno, or South of Italy. In "Coming to America: Italian Americans, Barry Moreno relives their story: the misery they suffered, their uncertain hope, their struggle for assimilation, and their enduring love of Italy and passion for family tradition, which flourished in the Little Italies that grew up right across America. With their strong devotion to the Catholic Church, their vigorous role in the building of modern America, and their love of good food and music, the Italians added a colorful dimension to American society, making powerful contributions to its architecture, its music, film and theater, and political vitality.

[flap copy]
For the world's oppressed, poor, or simply opportunistic, America has always offered hope, luck, and the chance for a new start. "Coming to America is a nostalgic and evocative series using the authentic voices and personal accounts of the people who undertook--willingly or unwillingly--the often-dangerous voyage to the new country. Authored by specialists in their subjects under the general editorship of Barry Moreno, a curator at Ellis Island Museum, the books contain dozens of voices that speak clearly down the generations. They relate the engrossing stories of their personal histories, their journeys, how they were received, and whatthey made of their new lives in America.
Barry Moreno is a historian at the Ellis Island Museum. He has worked on a book of interviews of the immigrants passing through Ellis Island in different decades, and was the author of the Statue of Liberty Encyclopedia.
