This book includes the stories of the swarms of men, women and children who, out of sheer lack of a decent living, moved from a group of villages in the Apennine mountains of Bologna and Modena to labor in the American Midwest.

He has worked throughout the world, trying to understand and help eliminate poverty, inequality and the causes of migration and under-development.RSVP at https://acrossocean.eventbrite.com
