Description

The American Family Albums tell the often heroic stories of American immigrant groups, largely through their own words and pictures. Like any family album or scrapbook, the pages contain many period photographs and other memorabilia. These join with original documents -- including selections from personal diaries, letters, memoirs, and newspapers -- to provide a pictorial and written record of the group's life in America, and their contributions to the brilliant diversity of these United States.show more

Review quote

-Captures the broad sweep of the Japanese American experience.... The subjects of the photos...invite readers into their lives and share with them their fears and hopes as they settle into their new land.---School Library Journal-One of [the book's] strengths lies in the hundreds of black and white photographs, which add a very personal touch to a history filled with racial discrimination... Will be an eye opener for readers who have no understanding of how people of Japanese ancestry came to the United States and how badly they were treated.---Social Education-A personal and moving documentary.---Children's Bookwatch-A good source for first-hand testimony on a number of issues affecting Japanese Americans ranging from the exploitation of the new immigrants to working in the fields to prejudice to picture brides.... This book is an excellent place to start exploring the Japanese American experience.---VOYA-A treasure trove of information, pictures, and history of Japanese Americans in the United States.... A book that anyone could look at and read with delight and satisfaction. It is a wonderfully painless way of learning a great deal about the Japanese American background.---Pacific Reader-A combination photo album and family chronicle.
