For a great read and a wonderful background as to why our ancestors came to the states, I highy recommend Jerry Mangione and Ben Morreale's La Storia: Five Centuries of the Italian American Experience. I located a copy at my local library a few years ago when I began my journey and have since bought my own copy which is now well worn from multiple readings, and have given copies to my children and cousins.
