The Delta Italians II
The Delta Italians II by Paul V. Canonici
As Paul collected more stories he discovered the Sicilian immigrants had a different history and they immigrated under circumstances different from most other Delta Italians. They were not recruited as indentured workers. Consequently they had to look for work after their arrival. Italians recruited for cotton plantations generally came as families. On the other hand, Sicilian men preceded their wives and children, found work, got settled and then sent for their families. Volume 2 tells these stories though photos and words of these very immigrants. Volume 2 of The Delta Italians is hard cover with jacket, 288 pages and more than 440 pictures. The retail price is $60.
