Invisible Immigrants is a remarkable collection of letters from the past, now made available for the first time in paperback. A classic, first published in 1972, the book includes the letters of people who emmigrated to America in the nineteenth century and who kept in touch with friends and relatives in scattered parts of England and Scotland. Their voices speak to us here - sometimes bitterly, often with humor - telling us exactly what happened to them. Many of their letters are engrossing, some are amusing, others are poignant. They are ordinary people, these "invisible immigrants," and they capture their experience by relating the facts and details of everyday living.
