Through its powerful photos, this book might help in discussions about the
politics surrounding immigration from back in the time of the explorers to
present, about why people immigrate, what they go through often to try to
get to a better life somewhere else, etc. Other ideas might be to examine
the art works of artists who are/were immigrants and how their life
experiences related to immigration show themselves in the art work.
