This is a great book to get for yourself or for anyone interested in a quick but very compelling read about the history of immigration from Ireland to America. I'd particularly recommend it for young readers, as it contains a wide assortment of compelling pull-out letters and other "souvenirs" showing everyday items from and about those brave immigrants who left behind their homeland, its poverty, and starvation for a more hopeful (though far from easy) life in America.

The book has copies of actual letters tucked in envelopes on different pages. I loved the idea. I couldn't read some of them as they had faded through the years. But alas! They are reprinted at the end of the book. It was a good follow up to Out of Ireland. Thank you, Mr. And Mrs. Miller.

Primary sources the plenty with this book. The text might be too advanced for an elementary classroom but that doesn't matter because the foldouts and pictures that come with it accurately describe life then. Seriously buy this book, you can use it in so many ways or even if you are just interested in history.

I love this book! I first saw it several years ago but didn't have the money to buy it. Then I wished later I had bought it (this was before Amazon came along). Thank goodness for Amazon because now I have this wonderful book! It's an "interactive" book, with pull-outs like a sample of what a letter from Ireland to the US was like, and a sample of a ticket at Ellis Island. That sort of thing. It's interesting! All Celtophiles should have this book!

I'm writing a novel about two Irish immigrants, Aislin and Liam (a married couple), and this gave me a lot of information that I couldn't find on the internet. Having ancestors from Ireland and Scotland--and having the red hair and Scottish last name, Johnston, to prove it--I really like learning about what life might have been like for them back hundreds of years ago. I think that if you want to learn about how life was back then from their days in Ireland all the way to their days in the American land, this is a great source to use, whether it's for a research paper, writing a novel (as I am), or just learning about people who left Ireland for the promised land. It's thorough, provides plenty of useful information, and has a lot of great extras, like letters and posters and more from the 1700s-1800s. If you're interested, buy this book.
