You ask, "What is your book about?" Well, my family and friends, it is about you and me. It is a memoir about how we came to be Americans, how we came to be related, and how we came to love our American dream life. Since I toddled, scurried, and practically ran through the entire twentieth-century, I feel I own it, and now you, my future reader, should inherit this legacy of feelings, thoughts, and experiences. Two global wars could not prevent our achievements in science, industrialization, or technology; a legacy no ancestor could possibly envision. All centuries combined never amassed the progress our early immigrants or we modern day Americans accomplished within these one hundred years. I have attempted to summarize and highlight the interesting parts and pieces with the hope you, my reader, will spread the word forward. Ultimately, this is a story for everyone's family. It is a story of immigrants without money or education who not only turned poverty into middle-class life, but created the most amazing American century the world has known.
