188 pp. Nearly new, no markings, firm binding. A collection of mini-biographical profiles of about 70 illustrious Italian Americans. The collection ranges from sports greats like Joe DiMaggio and Roy Campanella to lesser known figures like bowler Andy Varipapa and art museum director Luigi Palma Cesnola. Includes several b&w photos. Very readable, though perhaps too admiring of some, like Sinatra and Lee Iacocca, who had traits that were less than endearing. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
