Description


"A saga of a people, their struggles, and the triumphs in a new world, told with drama and passion....Should be read by all Americans interested in what binds us together, despite our different backgrounds and histories."   — New York Times Book Review

From the early Italian adventurers who played an important role in the European expansion across the Atlantic to the political and business leaders of the 1990s, this book tells a dramatic story. The heart of the story is the mass migration that took place between 1880 and 1924, when a whole culture left its ancient roots to settle in the cities and towns of America.
