We hear a lot about immigration today.  The United States is a nation of immigrants and has been so since the beginning.  There have been many laws through the years and many ways to document people coming to the United States.  A hundred years ago, immigrants from Europe came through New York City and passed through Ellis Island.  What was it like?  What if you were a child traveling all alone?  Do you think you could do it?  Join 10-year-old Sura as she arrives in America all by herself.
SUBJECTS:     United States -- Emigration and immigration -- Fiction.
                        Immigrants -- Fiction.
                        Ellis Island -- Immigration Station (N.Y. and N.J.) -- Fiction.
