Description: Every day thousands of immigrants, a majority of them women and children, arrive in the United States with the hope of building a future for themselves in this self-proclaimed "nation of immigrants." Women have had a strong and profound impact on the immigrant culture in the United States. They transport with them their culture -- language, food, clothing, religious celebrations, traditions -- which, within a period of time, becomes part of the proverbial melting pot of cultures that we have learned to call America.

This collection of original essays, the first of its sort, written by first generation women immigrants, offers a glimpse into this process of assimilation. Edited and with an introduction by a noted young Ghanaian-American author, this book includes selections by widely acclaimed authors such as Lucy Grealy, Lynn Freed and Judith Ortiz-Cofer, alongside the works of other established and up and coming writers. Contributions from writers born in places such as Japan, South Africa, Germany, England, the Soviet Union, Korea, India, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Chile, Singapore and China make this a truly collective representation of the female immigrant experience.
