♥ Book Title : The Sicilian
☯ Full Synopsis : "After Mario Puzo wrote his internationally acclaimed The Godfather, he has often been imitated but never equaled. Puzo's classic novel, The Sicilian, stands as a cornerstone of his work—a lushly romantic, unforgettable tale of bloodshed, justice, and treachery. . . . The year is 1950. Michael Corleone is nearing the end of his exile in Sicily. The Godfather has commanded Michael to bring a young Sicilian bandit named Salvatore Guiliano back with him to America. But Guiliano is a man entwined in a bloody web of violence and vendettas. In Sicily, Guiliano is a modern day Robin Hood who has defied corruption—and defied the Cosa Nostra. Now, in the land of mist-shrouded mountains and ancient ruins, Michael Corleone's fate is entwined with the dangerous legend of Salvatore Guiliano: warrior, lover, and the ultimate Siciliano.

♥ Book Title : The Sicilian Experience of Mr. Benny
☯ Full Synopsis : "Salvatore is only eight years old when he's sent to the Sicilian sulfur mines to work off his family's debt with the Mafia in 1888. Though the work is brutal, as he grows older, there is one bright spot—the beautiful Marianna, who also toils at the Miniera Di Zolfo. When they are teenagers, they fall in love and wed. For a time, they gain respite from the hard work and have two children, Samuel and Benedetto. But after three years, Salvatore must return to the mines; his family never sees him again. Marianna does her best to raise the boys without Salvatore, but a peasant's life in early twentieth-century Sicily is not easy. The Sicilian Experience of Mr. Benny shares the story of the early years of author J. B. Zito's grandfather, Ben. It provides historic insight into the rough existence the peasants faced, the trials with which common citizens dealt, and the desire of many to immigrate to America for a better life. The first of three volumes, The Sicilian Experience of Mr. Benny narrates the story of one family's early history that originated in Sicily, Italy."Article| Jb Zito| Statement ..."
