An oral history at its best - a rich and moving evocation of the Jewish immigrant experience in the early twentieth century. Manages to re-create a word that nearly all American Jews have lost and, with evocative force, to personalize the patterns of mobility that have made the Jews so fascinaing a symbol of American opportunity. Includes an Index.
