This book was about the immigration of many different types of people of different cultures, races and other features. It gave reasons of why certain ethnic groups wanted to come to America and why they wanted to leave their own country. Most of these reasons were because of economic issues within their own country and that they sought for more economic opportunities. One group, the Chinese wanted to come to America for more money and opportunity. Life in America was rumored to be full of wealthy people. Coming to America was just the first step for these people. The Chinese people's experiences in America were not all that great. They had to go through exploitation, racial discrimination and laws that targeted them specifically. This book not only talked about the Chinese immigrant's experiences but of many more. I think this book was fairly interesting because I was able to learn more about how the people of my race were affected by America.
