Random House, Inc.
Since 1820, some 50 million Europeans have immigrated to the United States and Canada. Their story has been told in many ways, but never like this. William Kurelek created hundreds of “immigrant” paintings that depicted his own family’s stories. He also wrote many of these stories down. Editor Margaret Engelhart has gathered these stories and paintings to create a unique introduction on what it meant to be an immigrant and the child of an immigrant.
