Immigration from South America
Mason Crest Publishing, 2005 

South American Immigrants cover

“Every year a steady influx of immigrants arrives in both the United States and Canada from the disparate nations of South America. Barnett outlines the history of this immigration and some of its major consequences. In telling this story, the author touches upon issues such as prejudice, language demands, cultural barriers, and the economic want some immigrants experience. This tale of migration is an excellent stand-alone resource. It is part of the illustrated series entitled “The Changing Face of North America.”
