Introducing a new nonfiction series that uncovers hidden histories of the United States.

The true story of a nation of immigrants and its dreamers.

The United States has long been touted as a place where anyone with a little grit and determination could come to pursue the American Dream. But as more walls are erected and borders are closed, is that dream still alive today? 

Complete with an 8-page color photo insert, A New History of Immigration introduces young readers to alternative histories of immigration beyond Ellis Island and amplifies the voices of marginalized immigrants and their stories of success.  

Series Overview: Explores histories often left out of traditional books or education curriculums.
