1st ed.
Tells the story of those seven million Irish men, women and children who left their native land and sailed to America, hoping for a chance at a better life. Many came searching for the streets they had heard were paved with gold and found that not only were they not paved with gold, the streets were not paved at all, and the Irish were expected to pave them. And so they did. Through moving text and more than 200 extraordinary images, THE IRISH IMMIGRANT EXPERIENCE pays tribute to the Irish in America, to their courage, their trials and their successes. We are given tangible proof of the grace, spirit, strength and passion of these remarkable people. The story of the Irish American is sometimes amazing, often amusing, frequently distressing, but always inspiring. It tells us not only who are the Irish in America, but what America itself is all about.
