Synopsis: This book is written as a documented account of the Hungarian Slovak Gypsies in America, not as a novel. Their history was spread out in different publications throughout the world. This book puts it all together and explains their history.

My book has won the 2013 USA Best Book Award as a "Finalist" in the "History: United States category and is now up for an International Award.

The book is a documented history of Hungarian-Slovak Gypsies that came to America over 120 years ago, they brought to America the traditional Hungarian Gypsy music they and their ancestors played in Europe for hundreds of years. They are directly linked to Europe's finest Gypsy musicians.

This book was written to preserve this great Hungarian Gypsy heritage. Throughout time Roma were discriminated against, persecuted and murdered for being Gypsy. Today the decendents of these Roma don't want to be Gypsy anymore and they are now on the verge of losing their heritage and music because of all the racism they face everyday.

From the villages of Hungary, this music was brought to America to make our hearts sing. It is part of world roots music. Piskor tells us,using words and striking photographs,the inside story about his Gypsy family and friends, and warns us of cultural treasures we may be losing. --Professor Steve Balkin, Roosevelt University http://sites.roosevelt.edu/sbalkin/roma/

I encourage you to acquire a book long overdue when concerning American-Hungarian music. Gypsy Violins is a significant historical document for anyone who has danced or listened to a csárdás or any other Magyar folk music. --Tibor Check Jr. William Penn Life Magazine http://www.williampennlife.org/wplife/2012/Wm.Penn.Life.June.2012.pdf

About the Author: I have been researching Gypsies Roma for over 40 years. I am from the Bashaldo Roma. My ancestors immigrated to the United States over 120 years ago, and now I have written a book about them. They were an important part to the history of folk Hungarian Gypsy Music in America. Through out history the Romany people have been the most persecuted race of people in the world. Because of this the descendents of these Roma do no want to be Gypsy anymore and now they are the verge of losing their heritage and music. This book and CD is an effort to preserve the Hungarian Gypsy Music and heritage. My book won the 2013 Best Book Awards as a "Finalist" in the "History: United Stated" category.
