Partly based on historical documents, personal memories and family stories; the book narrates the migration journeys of a family, beginning with two young men trying their fortune in America in the early 1900s.
Fast-forward 40 eventful years, Domenico Gatto seeks a new life in Australia and brings his reluctant wife and family to these shores. As the years pass, the family settles into their new home and realise not only the “Australian Dream” but so much more.
The story is a very personal tribute to the courage and resilience of a migrant family, depicted through the eyes of a growing boy as he himself strives to adapt to fit in, having fun along the way.
