Summary

This is the story of four generations of an Italian American family. It begins with an immigrant who came through Ellis Island with big dreams, a small shovel, and his parents' good advice: "Work hard, but remember to enjoy life, and never forget your family." Now, many years later, the man's great-grandson, Dan Yaccarino, tells how he succeeded, and how the little shovel has been passed from father to son-along with the good advice. It's a story that captures the experience of so many American families. One that will have kids asking their parents and grandparents, where did we come from? Tell meourstory.
