  • Sierra, her father and her mother live in Frankfurt, Germany. They have lost all their crops. Sierra's father tried to get a job, but he couldn't.  Soon they will have no food or money. 
  • I am Starving!
  • Sierra and her parents decide that their best way to survive was to go to the new land. They heard that it was a long and dangerous trip, but America had a lot of options for a new life.  
  • The trip took one month and was it was very brutal. Food was scarce and people got sick, some even died. Since they did not have much money, they were on the bottom level. The rooms were dirty and they were miserable.  
  • When they arrived at Ellis Island there were tons of people there. Everyone was given a health checkup and many were sent away. Luckily, Sierra's whole family was approved. They were given food and they were sent on their way to start their  new life.  
  • Sierra and her family settled in Texas, where they found a lot of Germans that had also settled in the area.   
  • Sierra and her family met a lot of Germans and they all flourished in America. These families had the opportunity to be artisans, carpenters, printers, shoemakers and tailors.  . Just like every other immigrant they had issues, they spoke a different language, they did not have very much money, finding shelter was difficult. Sierra's father became a shoemaker and they lived a new and better life.
  • We have more opportunity.
