Voice from the Mountains offers the unforgettable story of one man's pilgrimage from a bygone way of life to a modern, war-torn world and pays tribute to the power of art and the love of family. It sends readers back in time and across the globe to a narrow pass nestled in the Apennine Mountains of central Italy where Anthony Caponi spent his boyhood in the 1920s. We follow Anthony from his boyhood home to the world of immigrant America, where the sights and sounds of a new culture stimulated his creative development. With the advent of World War II, Anthony found this new identity at odds with his devotion to his homeland--a conflict that culminated when he returned to face friends and relatives in his home town as an American soldier. In ''Voice from the Mountains,'' Caponi weaves rustic charm and philosophical insight into a fluid narrative with echoes that carry the reader far beyond the particulars of time and place.

Born in 1921 in Pretare, Italy, Caponi immigrated to the U.S. in 1936 where he went on to study at Cleveland School of Art and receive his B.S. and M.Ed from the U. of Minnesota. Caponi became a professor at Macalester College in 1949, and was the art dept. head from 1954 to 1991. He is currently the artistic director at the Caponi Art Park and Learning Center, which features 63 acres of sculptures.
