Overview

Journey across the World on a Quilt of Gratitude Poems chronicling a quintessential American Dream come true. Witness four immigrants arriving at Ellis Island over a hundred years ago and grasping every opportunity they could find.

Leaving the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the late 1800's, these young adults created a new life for themselves in the industrial region of Pittsburgh. Cry with them as they cope with multiple miscarriages, the Great Depression and the Ultimate Price.

As their families grew and grew, read how they persevered through wrenching failures and struggled to make a better life for their children. The unexpected crises and violent encounters all help weave a narrative of winning against all the odds. Learn how they kept their dreams alive and never rose the white flag.
