Format: Library Binding
The book is not only beautiful with quality pictures and professionally put together. It is highly educational with the history of the Orphan Trains and Newsboys of New York City but also draws you in as you read the personal stories that Orphan Train riders have shared. The author helps you to imagine the time period and the dynamics going on in New York City at that time. Individuals facing difficult choices in the worst of situations and others wanting and trying so desperately to help the children, but faced with a situation most wanted to ignore.
The history of the Orphan Trains was kept out of school books after realizing what was done with the families that were torn apart, some never to unite...others never to know their true names, parents, history or ancestry.
The author knows first hand as she continues to search on behalf of her mother to learn of her mother's biological parents.
I highly recommend you read the book and then donate it at your local library. Then be sure to share the history with others and pass on this missing piece of history on behalf of all those who are still looking for their ancestry, their true identities and parents.

"Extra! Extra! The Orphan Trains and Newsboys of New York" is a fascinating book about a time when Orphans and abandoned children roamed the streets of New York. The author does an excellent job of sharing experiences of both the children and foster families. This was a unique period in our history. Thanks to the Childrens Aid Society and other agencies, homeless children were able to not only survive, but to become parts of loving families.

The book was purchased through Amazon and it was delivered promptly and in excellent shape.

An account of an historical event that is passing from the memory of this nation. The lives that were saved and the self-denying heroes and heroines who saved these children should be recognized and remembered by all.

I would not call this a comprehensive report or a revealing report or a scholarly report or a report which plows new ground. It is precious for the photos, for the notable collection of images of the orphans and the news boys. It is a good collection of photos.

I love the history of how these challenges were dealt with and would have liked more history
to have been built into the story. Photos were excellent.
