This is a book about identity and remembrance. This anthology presents personal narratives and historical photographs that illuminate the diversity of immigrant experiences in North and South Carolina since 1700. The broad focus of the book encompasses all walks of life and documents three centuries of social, political, artistic, and cultural history. The chapters follow historical timelines starting with colonial experiences leading up to the American Revolution, followed by immigrant accounts before and during the Civil War, experiences in the New South, and memories of twentieth century immigrants and the most recent arrivals. The common denominators of the autobiographies, diaries, and letters hinge on the confluence of American patriotism and immigrant pride, coupled with old world loyalties and new world ambitions that reflect the demographic shift from European to Asian and Hispanic immigrants in the American Southeast.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Memories of Carolinian Immigrants: Autobiographies, Diaries, and Letters from Colonial Times to the Present includes valuable accounts of a significant population in America's history.... Insightful collection of immigrant storiesssss -- Catherine Loiacano * North Carolina Historical Review, April 2010 *
Lixl provides an excellent introduction, explaining the book's intended purpose. His stated aim is to "historicize and personalize our understanding of the immigrant experience (p.xix)" and, in so doing, add to readers' awareness of the importance of immigrant influences on life in and the culture of the two Carolinas. His attempt is successful, and the book is a worthy addition to cultural and oral history collections. Recommended. * CHOICE, March 2010 *
