About the Book

A vivid, idealistic and inspiring autobiography of an emotional Russian child who came as an immigrant to the Boston slums and used all the opportunities possible in “the promised land.”
— A.L.A. Catalog 1912-1921
“Autobiography of an immigrant who was born less than thirty years ago (1912) in Polotzk, Russia, a town in the Jewish pale, and spent her childhood there. Her family being driven by the pressure of poverty to immigrate, when she was twelve years old she was brought to America, where she made a brilliant progress thru the public schools of Boston and thru Barnard college. The story of her life is absorbing in its human significance, remarkable for its literary distinction and convincingly hopeful in its view of the immigrant problem in America.”
– Standard Catalog for Public Libraries: Biography Section (1927)
