Book Description:
Emanuel di Pasquale was born in Sicily in 1943 and grew up there. When he was a baby, his father died, and later he had to drop out of school and work in a bakery to help feed his family. At 13 he came to America, where he eventually became a teacher. But he never forgot his homeland, an island with a rugged beauty, rich in history and tradition, family life and festivals. This evocative collection of poems is di Pasquale's tribute to his native country. The author's childhood was a time of wonder and adventure recorded here in brief, stirring images of village life waking up at dawn to see a hawk circling the sky, feeling baby crabs scuttle over his sandy toes, and stumbling over stone tools resting where they were left by a people who vanished thousands of years ago. These poems bring Sicily to life, weaving words into music that remains with the reader. K. Dyble Thompson's sensitive black and white illustrations accompany the lyrical text.
