Over the last two centuries, many different immigrant groups in North America have contributed to the rich diversity of culture in the United States and Canada. While some came to find opportunity, others were brought against their will. We Came to North America tells the history of the adventurous and often perilous journeys our ancestors made including:
-- the country they came from and why they left
-- how they reached North America
-- eyewitness accounts before and after reaching their new home
-- where they settled and the obstacles they encountered
-- cultural traditions we still celebrate today
-- famous people from each group and their contributions
At the height of migration from Italy, children were recruited under the Padroni system and brought to North America to work as shoeshiners, musicians, and even acrobats. This interesting account of how Italians first came to North America and how their traditions are still celebrated today is highlighted with full-color artwork and eyewitness accounts.
