Ten-year-old Johann recalls the hardships and triumphs of the immigrant experience in 1902, as his German family emigrates in search of the "paradise" said to lie in America. This well-researched novel has much to tell us about what it means to leave one's homeland for another. The 2002 Batchelder Award Winner.
