About the Book

The United States is considered the world�s foremost refuge for foreigners, and no place in the nation symbolizes this better than Ellis Island. Through Ellis Island�s halls and corridors more than twelve million immigrants�of nearly every nationality and race�entered the country on their way to new experiences in North America. With an astonishing array of nineteenth- and twentieth-century photographs, Ellis Island leads the reader through the fascinating history of this small island in New York harbor from its pre-immigration days as one of the harbor�s oyster islands to its spectacular years as the flagship station of the U.S. Bureau of Immigration to its current incarnation as the National Park Service�s largest museum. ��
