The Immigrant is the biographical story of the author's grandfather, a young Jew who fled the pogroms of Czarist Russia in 1909 and pushed his banana cart into the tiny Baptist community of Hamilton, Texas. Given shelter by a childless older couple, he sent for his wife, raised a family, and made this town his home. A true story of parents and children, newcomers and natives, Christians and Jews, and the realization of the American Dream.
