In a picture book inspired by Mary Antin's classic immigrant memoir The Promised Land, Rosemary Wells brings renewed freshness to the story of Masha, a young Russian girl. In the last decade of the 19th century, the czar's harsh anti-Semitic laws forbid Masha, who is Jewish, from going to school. When her family immigrates to America, Masha not only achieves the long-desired education, but also gains success as a poet, and a love for her new country that will last all her life.
