Although Ukrainians have been immigrating to the United States since the 1870s, it wasn't until after Ukraine gained its independence from the Soviet Union in 1991 that large-scale migration occurred. In addition to profiles on notable Ukrainian Americans, such as actor Jack Palance and Hall of Fame NHL goaltender Terry Sawchuk, ""Ukrainian Americans"" provides a well-balanced introduction to the history, culture, religion, and experiences of this immigrant group. Full-color photographs and an abundance of extra features, including sidebars, footnotes, bibliography, and more, round out this informative book.
