This book explores the stories behind leaving the mountains and islands of Greece throughout its recent tumultuous history. Many of those emigrants came to the sprawling cities and countryside of the United States. Readers will explore how Greek Americans did much to overcome war, family conflicts, exploitative labor practices, restrictive xenophobic quotas, and generational identity differences to become part of the American experiment. The history of how Greeks became Americans through these contemplations of the problems that immigration poses will activate the reader's critical thinking skills. They will recognize that these problems are relevant today.
