Ellis Island -- a place where inexplicable joy mixes with terrible
homesickness in the hearts of many immigrants from around the
world. What were some of their first impressions? Arriving
empty-handed, how did many of these young hopefuls cope? Author
Veronica Lawlor compiles the memories of a variety
of people who passed through Ellis Island between 1900 and 1925 in
I Was Dreaming to Come to America.
