"So Big, This Little Place"- The Founding of Tontitown, Arkansas, 1898-1917

View all copies of this ISBN edition:

By the time Ambassador des Planches came to Tontitown, the Italian community nestled in the Arkansas Ozarks was already receiving national and international attention as a model of successful immigration. The town's idyllic rural setting was in direct contrast to the crowded tenements of East Coast cities where so many Italians settled upon their arrival in America. This book is about those early, attention-getting years of Tontitown, Arkansas. The time period chosen- 1898 to 1917- mirrors the time spent in Tontitown by Father Pietro Bandini, the town's spiritual and secular leader.
