As the U.S. entry point for nearly twelve million immigrants in the late 1800s and early 1900s, Ellis Island is truly a cornerstone of our nation's history. Author Judith Jango-Cohen describes the Ellis Island experience from the point of view of immigrants by incorporating real-life stories. In addition, readers will learn about the island's history--from its years of peak operation to its decline--and its reopening as the Ellis Island Immigration Museum.
