About this product
- DescriptionHow far from your native country would you travel to find a place to live, in freedom? What if it meant leaving behind everything and everyone you had ever loved, if only because of a slim chance that a better life might exist someplace else? Book One of Land of the Free, Home of the Brave is the story of a thirty-two year-old Italian stonemason who had such a dream, as well as the faith and the courage to make it come true, both for himself and for his family. Pasquale DeVito was a man with money, education, or connections. One day, while walking through his village, he saw a poster; and the poster inspired him to dream something big. That dream would take him across an ocean, to a land desperate for strong, hard-working men ready to complete the building of a modern new nation. This is his story, the story of his descendants, and the story of America in the twentieth century.
