Ellis Island's Famous Immigrants. Part of the Images of America: New York Series). Since 1776, millions of immigrants have landed at America s shores. To this day, their practical contributions are still felt in every field of endeavor, including agriculture, industry, and the service trades. But within the great immigrant waves there also came plucky and talented individualists, artists, and dreamers. Many of these exceptional folk went on to win worldly renown, and their names live on in history.

These days Ellis Island is a national symbol remembered in sepia tones, but while it was in active service the station reflected the country’s complicated relationship with immigration-one that evolved from casual openness to rigid restriction. It was not a great welcoming place for immigrants, but it was not a place of horrors either, says Vincent Cannato, author of American Passage: The History of Ellis Island.

The United States is considered the world's foremost refuge for foreigners, and no place in the nation symbolizes this better than Ellis Island. Through Ellis Island's halls and corridors more than twelve million immigrants-of nearly every nationality and race-entered the country on their way to new experiences in North America. With an astonishing array of nineteenth- and twentieth-century photographs, Ellis Island leads the reader through the fascinating history of this small island in New York harbor from its pre-immigration days as one of the harbor's oyster islands to its spectacular years as the flagship station of the U.S. Bureau of Immigration to its current incarnation as the National Park Service's largest museum.

My 10 year old grandson was doing a school project on Ellis Island and the immigration process. the book was extremely informative and he read this and Children of Ellis Island and received an A+ in his project. I think it was a great project because he realized that not every child had something to eat much less an I-pad.
  • Silverbrew
arrived promptly. Well done volume of pictures and history of a time that is all but forgotten.
  • Zeus Wooden
Very disappointed. While I like to see photos of the history I am reading about, I want a little more written info. The entire book is basically, here is a photo of someone from ..., (lots of those photos), or here they are getting an eye exam, or here is a motley crew sitting around. No photo has more than a couple of paragraphs of info.
  • VizoRRR
Fabulous book with incredible pictures!
  • Celore
I was a bit disappointed. The information was good,however presented in a dry format. If the writer had followed some of the people from arrival to their new residence giving the reader a feel of knowing the person. I personally would have enjoyed the book much more if the presation were different.
. If I had wanted a dry documentry I would have taken a class on the subject.
