The History of U.S. Immigration
Coming to AmericaBook - 2006
Although America is often described as a melting pot-in which different cultures "melt" together to become one-this is far from the truth. The nation was built by the unique contributions of its immigrants. Instead of melting together, European, African, Asian, Hispanic, and Middle Eastern immigrants have all kept their identities and helped contribute to the rich tapestry of American history. The History of U.S. Immigration: Coming to America discusses what the immigrants experienced and how they made the nation strong. Book jacket.
