At the height of migration from Italy, children were recruited under the Padrone system and brought to North America to work as shoeshiners, musicians, and even acrobats. This interesting account is highlighted with full-color artwork and eyewitness accounts. Detailed maps show where they settled and how their traditions are still celebrated today.
