Following the passage of legislation requiring the screening of immigrants, the other Ellis Island processed around one million people from Japan, China, and Korea.

Drawing from memoirs, diaries, letters, and the wall poems discovered at the facility long after it closed, nonfiction master Russell Freedman describes the people who came, and why- the screening process- detention and deportation- changes in immigration policy- and the eventual renaissance of Angel Island as a historic site open to visitors. Includes archival photos, source notes, bibliography, and index.
