9781482507706: Ithaka on the Horizon: A Greek-American Journey

In 1955, a little boy is caught up in the maelstrom that destroys much of the last vestiges of Greek civilization in Turkey. Narrowly escaping death at the hands of a vengeful mob, he and his family emigrate to the United States where he grows up trying to balance two competing cultures, American and Greek, both pulling in different directions. Accompany him on his voyage through life, like Odysseus searching for a mythical Ithaka, he returns to forgotten homelands in search of a true self. "Ithaka on the Horizon" is the real life saga of one man's quest for self discovery but it is more importantly about family and the people along the way who mold each of us into who we are and who we become. This book offers the reader a rare window into the fading past of the Greek immigrant experience, portrayed against the backdrop of the tumultuous and tragic last one hundred years of Greek history. It relives the past in order to understand and appreciate the struggles of successive generations, each passing on its legacy to the next.

From the Author:

Life is a journey, but it's not about the places along the way, it's about the people who give you a piece of themselves.

From the Back Cover:

"A moving memoir about a close knit immigrant family that struggles to maintain the cherished values of the old country while taking advantage of the freedom and opportunities of their new-found land. A touching story told with rare simplicity and emotion.                                                                          Nicholas Gage, author of the bestseller "ELENI"
