History of American Immigration

History of American Immigration

by Peter A. Hammerschmidt

Whether you call it a melting pot, a patchwork quilt, or an ethnic stew, America is like no other place in the world because of the remarkable diversity of its population. All of the ethnic groups that arrived on America's shores brought their own cultures, languages, foods, holidays, and religious views. This, in turn, has made North America truly a "land of immigrants." This book provides an overview of immigration to the United States and Canada. It describes experiences common to most immigrants, regardless of their country of origin-including the struggle to hold on to old customs in a new land, and the difficulties of overcoming prejudice and discrimination.
