From colonial times to the present, traveler and immigrant writers have seen America with new eyes. They have perceived and recorded the American experience as few native-born writers could do, yet their lives and words have often been left out of traditional American studies. This book provides an overview of ethnic-American personal writing with descriptive studies of more than twenty-five major autobiographies. In addition to providing biographical information about the writers, and bibliographical data about their tests, the volume presents both descriptions and analyses of the selected narratives.
