This book deals with the formation of New York City's multicultural character. It draws a sketch of the metropolis' first big immigration waves and describes the development of immigrants who entered the New World as foreigners and strangers and soon became one of the most essential parts of the city's very character. A main focus is laid upon the ambiguity of the immigrants' identity which is captured between assimilation and separation, and one of the most important questions the book deals with is whether the city can be seen as one of the world's greatest melting pots or just as a huge salad bowl inhabiting all kinds of different cultures. The book approaches this topic from an historical and a fictional point of view and concentrates on personal experiences of the immigrants as well as on the cultural impact immigration had on the megalopolis New York.

Fifty years ago, John Steinbeck's now classic novel, The Grapes of Wrath, captured the epic story of an Oklahoma farm family driven west to California by dust storms, drought, and economic hardship. It was a story that generations of Americans have also come to know through Dorothea Lange's unforgettable photos of migrant families struggling to make a living in Depression-torn California. Now in James N. Gregory's pathbreaking American Exodus, there is at last an historical study that moves beyond the fiction and the photographs to uncover the full meaning of these events. American Exodus takes us back to the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s and the war boom influx of the 1940s to explore the experiences of the more than one million Oklahomans, Arkansans, Texans, and Missourians who sought opportunities in California. Gregory reaches into the migrants' lives to reveal not only their economic trials but also their impact on California's culture and society. He traces the development of an "Okie subculture" that over the years has grown into an essential element in California's cultural landscape. The consequences, however, reach far beyond California. The Dust Bowl migration was part of a larger heartland diaspora that has sent millions of Southerners and rural Midwesterners to the nation's northern and western industrial perimeter. American Exodus is the first book to examine the cultural implications of that massive 20th-century population shift. In this rich account of the experiences and impact of these migrant heartlanders, Gregory fills an important gap in recent American social history.

In Bowl of Heaven, the first collaboration by science fiction masters Larry Niven (Ringworld) and Gregory Benford (Timescape), the limits of wonder are redrawn once again as a human expedition to another star system is jeopardized by an encounter with an astonishingly immense artifact in interstellar space: a bowl-shaped structure half-englobing a star, with a habitable area equivalent to many millions of Earths...and it's on a direct path heading for the same system as the human ship. A landing party is sent to investigate the Bowl, but when the explorers are separated—one group captured by the gigantic structure's alien inhabitants, the other pursued across its strange and dangerous landscape—the mystery of the Bowl's origins and purpose propel the human voyagers toward discoveries that will transform their understanding of their place in the universe.

The journey to the sporting world's grandest stage - the Super Bowl - is often wrought with overwhelming obstacles, personal challenges, and a workload that would make most men cringe. No one understands this more than Marc Edwards, whose winding road from blue collar Norwood, Ohio to the NFL and ultimately the Super Bowl was littered with derailing pot holes. How Marc became a successful family man and an old-school battering ram of a Super Bowl champion should no longer be a mystery. Odyssey: From Blue Collar, Ohio to Super Bowl Champion chronicles Marc's personal quest for something great and how a cast of family members and behind-the-scenes family friends helped to keep him on track. Freelance writer and former award-winning newspaper sports editor Aaron M. Smith takes the reader on an intriguing ride through the rigors and joys of transforming from a third-grader with a dream to a captain at legendary Notre Dame and eventually to the starting backfield for the world champion New England Patriots. Marc's struggles and eventual triumph will serve as inspiration and offer proof that you most certainly can do anything you want if you simply put in the effort.

A Bowl of Cherries is a vivid, personal account of Canada’s early-twentieth-century history, spanning from the late 1800s, when Jules Legal’s grandparents built a homestead in the harsh scrublands of Southeastern Manitoba, to the author’s own upbringing during the Great Depression, the war years, and beyond. Set against the backdrop of an industrializing, modernizing nation, Jules shares his family’s story, describing with striking detail and emotional resonance the challenges his parents face as they struggle to raise their family through times of economic upheaval. The bulk of the anecdotes take place between 1937 and 1953, as Jules follows the ever-winding—often hazardous—river of life. From the suburbs of St. Catharines to the backwaters of rural Manitoba, Jules describes the joys of boyhood friendships, and how easily best buddies can lead each other astray. He is also exposed to the religious politics of the time, when the segregation between Catholics and Protestants in the school system leads to dramatic conflicts. Jules navigates his way through the challenges of puberty and ongoing relocations, as his family moves yet again in order to stay afloat in a still-struggling economy. While Jules strives to make his mark wherever his parents take him, he forever maintains his curiosity and enthusiasm for life. Throughout it all, Jules is constantly reminded—by his family, by himself, and by the titular song—that life is just “a bowl of cherries”: an experience to be embraced, not taken too seriously, and most importantly, to be enjoyed.
