Nearly everyone in America came from somewhere else. This is a fundamental part of the American idea—an identity and place open to everyone. People arrive from all points distant, speaking a thousand languages, carrying every culture, each with their own reason for uprooting themselves to try something new. Everyone has their own unique story. Little America is a collection of those stories, told by the people who lived them. Together, they form a wholly original, at times unexpected portrait of America’s immigrants—and thereby a portrait of America itself.


As a companion to the Apple TV show of the same name, this book features the stories of a huge variety of people who made their way to America by a variety of different means. Some are hugely successful, some are just scraping by, some are happy and some are still searching, but all of them have a fascinating story to tell.

The stories from the TV show are there, but there are also more and featuring people from all around the globe. It’s a super quick read, each story only takes a few minutes to get through but some of them leave a lasting impressing. A recommended watch and read.
