Exploring ImmigrationBook - 2011
Interest in family history is at its highest. Young people want to know where they came from, as well as the people who built their family and their country. The United States is often called a melting pot, made up of immigrants from all around the world. Exploring Immigration provides information on all the different types of people coming together to live in the "New World". This title describes the dangers of traveling to a new country and why people would be willing to take that risk. European, African, Asian, Middle Eastern, and Hispanic immigrants came together to form America. Knowing where and when a person's ancestor came to America can help him or her understand his or her own personal history. Readers explore their own and other people's pasts, creating an understanding of the opportunities and challenges that built this nation. ABDO & Daughters is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
