What People are Saying About This

Tony P. Hall
"The book portrays a fascinating array of people in an America that no longer exists, chronicling their rise from poor immigrants to citizens solidly woven into the fabric of the nation. A story we all should read and remember, as it reminds us what has made this country great. The book is not a simple biography of a wonderful man, although his story is at its heart. Eddie's sister, MaryLouise, for example is a distinguished and fascinating character in her own right (among other things, it is believed she was a spy during World War II)."--(From the Honorable Tony P. Hall, United Nations Ambassador, former Ohio Congressman, and three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee)
