Just received book and I can't put it down. I too am from Calabrian decent and I have always been proud of that. This book has opened my eyes and brought back allot of memories. I always admired my grandparents especially for all their hard work to get to the USA but never truly realized how difficult life was back then.Cant wait to finish!
