Little America: Incredible True Stories of Immigrants in America (Hardcover)
From the pages of Epic magazine come the true stories that Inspired the Apple Original Series.
Includes nearly a hundred color photographs and a Foreword by Kumail Nanjiani.
Nearly everyone in America came from somewhere else. This is a fundamental part of the American idea—an identity and place open to everyone. People arrive from all points distant, speaking a thousand languages, carrying every culture, each with their own reason for uprooting themselves to try something new.
Everyone has their own unique story. Little America is a collection of those stories, told by the people who lived them. Together, they form a wholly original, at times unexpected portrait of America’s immigrants—and thereby a portrait of America itself.
