Immigrant in Peril is the tragic and heartwarming account of Carl Tangeman's immigrant adventure. When his ship blew off course in a ferocious storm on the Atlantic Ocean, he began his heroic journey from New Orleans to New York across the American frontier. He faced a life-threatening disaster, nativism from Americans, learning a new language, finding a job and the challenge of understanding a different culture.
The author of Immigrant in Peril is a great-great granddaughter of Carl Tangeman. As a young descendent, she learned of Carl's adventures from older family members. She grew up in the same township where he settled on the Great Plains of Kansas in 1880. She has been a champion of young people's causes as an educator, child advocate, author and social worker. This is her first young adult historical fiction.
