La Storia: Five Centuries of the Italian-American Experience
by Jerre Mangione
Some five and a half million fellow Italians followed Cristoforo Colombo of Genoa across the Atlantic, most of them within the past century. La Storia (the word means “history” as well as “story”) is the first comprehensive account of the Italian American immigration, combining historical research with the gripping personal narratives of the immigrants themselves and their descendants – first-person stories of the adventurers, missionaries, artisans, laborers, and peasants of both sexes who settled throughout the United States, surviving hardship to become an integral and valued part of our national fabric.
