Write The First Customer Review

Here is a colourful alternative to the view that America's immigrants were uprooted, defenceless pawns adrift in a sea of confusion and despair. Taking the members of one nationality as a prototype, Westward the Immigrants (originally published as The Immigrants Upraised) traces the social, political, and economic progress of Italian immigrants after they deserted New York's crowded Mulberry Street for more rewarding pursuits in the twenty-two states west of the Mississippi.
