1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 705 libraries worldwide
Faces of America introduces a wide range of cultural figures--representing a vast range of cultural and ethnic roots--to their ancestors and their stories, from the old country through the journey to America.

Through original documents and photos, the program explores the dynamic and shifting relationship America had with new immigrants in the 20th century.
