America meant "freedom" to the immigrants of the early 1900s--but a freedom very different from what they expected._ Cities were crowded and jobs were scare._ Children had to work selling newspapers, delivering goods, and laboring sweatshops._ In this touching book, Newberry Medalist Russell Freedman offers a rare glimpse of what it meant to be a young newcomer to America.
