Book summary: One of the greatest success stories ever told unfolds in the pages of this compelling, three-dimensional book. Through intimate letters, journals, and diaries of actual immigrants, Journey of Hope chronicles the Irish in America and their triumphant rise from adversity and prejudice to prosperity and prominence. Interactive fold-outs, pockets, and envelopes hold a myriad of facsimile documents that bring the Irish immigration experience vividly to life. Unfold the eviction notice that forced desperate Irish peasants from their homes--and to foreign shores. Read a father's farewell poem to the emigrating son he would never see again. Or study the letter of a proud Union soldier as he describes the brave deeds of his Irish-American regiment. From start to finish, Journey of Hope tells a fascinating story not soon to be forgotten.
