In this revised edition sixty-nine poems in the main text have been combined with the sixty-six poems in the appendix into one section. Chinese poems that have been found on the walls of the immigration stations at Ellis Island in New York ad Victoria, B.C. in Canada are also included. Charles Egan, David Chuenyan Lai, Marlon K. Hom, and Ellen Yeung helped with the new translations and corrected any errors in the poems based on a report commissioned by the Angel Island Immigration Foundation. The historical introduction is rewritten to include the new research that has been done since Island was first published; excerpts of oral histories are replaced with twenty full profiles and stories drawn from our oral history collection and the immigration files at the National Archives, San Francisco.
