This fine collection of poetry and photographic images interprets
immigrant experiences of 20th century America. Jim Johnson's poetry tells of first and second generation dreams, struggles,
and belief in the ideals of co-operation. Through photographs and photomontages, Marlene Wisuri captures their spirit with
haunting images that are both touching and mysterious.

Being poetry, history, photography, this book is a co-operative venture. It bears The Co-op Label for your inspection.
While Part I portrays immigration and the anti-immigration activities of 1918, Part II alludes to anti-communists sentiments
of the 1950s. Although Part II was inspired in part by The Co-operative Builder, January and July 1943 issues, most of it
is fiction. Part III hovers around the question-whether Co-operation is a remnant of the past or a seed of our future. This,
we think, is a past that more and more needs reinvention.
