As the First World War drew to a close the chaos and violence of the Russian Civil War provided both impetus and opportunity for Jewish families still living in the Ukraine to immigrate to the United States. These resourceful people left Eastern Europe with only what they could carry and arrived in America with nothing but their wits and their willingness to work hard. In the decades that followed they left an indelible mark on American society and created an enduring legacy for their children and grandchildren. Bernard Reznick's story opens in a small Russian village and, through perseverance and ingenuity, ends in beautiful Beverly Hills. Along the way, he and his family escape the Russian pogroms, find new ways to make their living, and in California he finds his niche and his fortune in the mail delivery business. His story is, ultimately, that of an immigrant American living the American dream.
