What would it be like to leave your home in Europe, travel thousands of miles in the miserable place below decks called steerage, and arrive in New York harbor at Ellis Island, which you and your parents see as the gateway to a new life?

William Jay Jacob's moving text in combination with photographs of the period recreates the American immigrant experience - its hardships, uncertainties, and anxieties, as well as its overwhelming sense of home.
