Clean, tight, unmarked; absolute minimal wear; appears unread; This book uses history, personal recollections and photographs to record over 100 years of the Italian Canadian experience in Winnipeg. Carbone provides the historical background for the events and forces that shaped Italian immigration to Winnipeg, while excerpts from the personal memories of four generations of Winnipeg Italians tell individual stories of the hardships and triumphs of building a new life in a new country. As well, over 100 photographs illustrate both the public and private faces of Winnipeg Italians. Together, these words and images weave together the story of generations of Winnipeg Italians as they struggled with the decision to leave their homeland, endured long separations from family, found work and set down roots in their new country while retaining ties to the old one.
