About this title

Synopsis:

Portuguese Spinner: An American Story is the first attempt to capture, in popular form, the saga of Portuguese migration and the people's struggle to build a new life in America. This diverse collection includes oral history, folk tales, original literary contributions, scholarly reports and popular journalism. Hundreds of photographs portray the magnificent beauty of the Portuguese islands and the mainland, and take us into the many corners of American life where Luso Americans have left their mark.

From the Publisher:

"Here's a publication with almost as many authors as there are pages, a glossy coffee table book designed for this states Portuguese communities but certainly a major literary effort that will interest most readers regardless of ethnic background.

"Portuguese Spinner: An American Story is truly a community endeavor involving editors, writers, photographers, interviewers and researchers, it tells a story that in a paradoxical sense is both old and new.

"It is new because it focuses on persons of a Portuguese descent who left their homes in Portugal, the Azores, the Madeiras or other islands to settle on Cape Cod or in nearby cities. It is old because while the characters have changed, the story has been told before, the always remarkable tale of impoverished immigrants leaving their homes in foreign lands, seeking and usually achieving a better life in America.

"With a detailed bibliography, index and numerous rare photographs complementing the lyrical and often humorous oral histories, Portuguese Spinner is truly a one-volume library, to be read and treasured."
