Read full description of the books:



This was exactly the book I've been looking for. My Sicilian grandfather DID NOT TALK about what his early life was like. This book helps fill that void.
I always wondered how my grandfather could bear to leave Sicily - such a beautiful place. This book gives reasons. It tells about the voyage, about the conditions in the US, about the women left behind (at least for a while). It helps me understand why he might not have wanted to have talked about it all. It makes me appreciate his courage and his sacrifices.

The one thing in the book I wasn't thrilled about was the second section which talked about Italian-American successes in sports, the arts, politics.

And by the way, there was a co-author, Ben Morreale - it's not fair to leave him out.
