Inspired by the poor living conditions of Russian emigrants in the United States the authornbsp;observed during the World's Fair: Columbian Exposition of 1893, this story follows two Ukrainian peasants who endure hardships while trying to settle in a new land. Letters from a friend who immigrated to the United States encourage Ivan and Matvei to abandon their difficult lives in a small Ukrainian village. After a long, uncomfortable trip, they arrive in New York and find themselves in a Russian Jewish neighborhood. Ivan easily picks up English and adapts quickly, but kindhearted giant Matvei is having trouble acclimating; to him, the city seems dirty, deafening, and inhospitable. One day he gets lost among the crowd, which sets off a series of adventures that only strengthens his desire to return home. Amid the chaos of the large city, Matvei conjures the silence of the forest and the simplicity of man's bond with nature he once knew.

Tras un viaje largo e incómodo, llegan a Nueva York y se encuentran en un barrio judío ruso. Iván aprende inglés fácilmente y se adapta rápidamente, pero el gigante bondadoso Matvéi tiene problemas aclimatándose; la ciudad le parece sucia, ruidosa e inhóspita.

Entre el caos de la gran ciudad, Matvéi rememora el silencio del bosque y la sencillez del vínculo entre el hombre y la naturaleza que una vez conocía.
