Millions of people from all over the world left their homelands in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to come to the United States. Their journerys were often long and perilous, but to these huddled masses, the sight of the Statue of Liberty signified hope for a new beginning in their new home-America. Whether settling in city tenements or heading west for life on the frontier, these immigrants toiled to achieve the lives they had dreamed about. Their experiences helped to shape our national identity and heritage. Over one hundred vintage photographs, posters, and paintings from the archives of the Library of Congress-often called " the storehouse of the national memory"-remind us of what becoming American meant to millions of people.

Journeys in Time: A New Atlas of American History is a fantastic history resource that traces the history of America through maps and stories. America is defined by movement, from the First Nations people to European settlement to slaves to immigrants. This unique book features two-page spreads that highlight individuals' journeys; some are famous, like Christopher Columbus, the Mayflower, Daniel Boone and the Wilderness Road, and Lewis and Clark, while others focus more on events and the common people who lived through them-Rosa Cristoforo's immigration from Italy to America, Graciela Moreno's cyclical journeys as a migrant worker. Beginning with the Anishinabe origin story through one boy's exit from Vietnam in 1976, this resource is a unique way to interact with maps, movement, and the past. 48 indexed pages, softcover. Grades 4-7.
