Extra! Extra! The Orphan Trains and Newsboys of New York
The orphan trains that departed New York City carrying more than 250,000 children from various East Coast orphanages, to all points West across the United States, became the largest mass migration of children ever in US history.

From agonizing letters written by desperate mothers, to news stories of the latest train, or of newsboys looking out for each other, the humanity of individuals caught up in the sweep of history is unmistakable.
This book, a nonfiction global history, portrays over 250 hauntingly good photographs.
