The Story of a Gateway to America
Author: Hal Marcovitz
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Category: Juvenile Nonfiction
Between 1892 and 1954, more than 12 million immigrants entered the United States through the Ellis Island processing station in New York harbor. To these immigrants, Ellis Island was a symbol of the American dream—once they passed through its gates, they could start a new life with opportunities that were not available to them in their countries of origin. Today, roughly one-third of our country's population is descended from those who were processed at Ellis Island, and the facility is now a museum dedicated to American immigration.

This authentically reproduced Handbook of the United States was a trusted resource that told them everything they needed to know as they strove to become Americans.

Millions passed through the gateway of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island on their way to becoming Americans, and The Handbook of the United States is an authentic reproduction of one of the immigrants' most trusted resources- a complete guide to the USA, including everything from the pay-rates of various trades to amusing statistics about what Americans ate, drank, and manufactured. Once the tool that helped thousands of Irish, Italian and Jewish immigrants use their drive and industriousness to succeed, today it provides new insights into the extraordinary circumstances of the immigrant experience and the new arrivals' remarkable contribution to making America a great global power.
