Description


The "Coming of Age" story of a young, redheaded Italian boy, who with his mother and older brother, leaves the poverty of his rural home in Southern Italy to migrate to Australia and reunite with his father (who he has never seen) and start a new life in Sydney, in the early 1960's.

"My father was a very simple man. He only wanted a simple and uncomplicated life."

"He liked fresh air and sheep. He did not like people or the company of people much, "Never trust the people" was his mantra and he repeated this often."

"My father often told me: "I went from Heaven to Hell " This is what my father would often tell me of his experience when he first arrived in Australia."

"Make sure to have a good, LIFE so that you can have a good DEATH "

-Don Vito Radice
