Rate this:
This is the dynamic story of the men and women who constituted Vancouver's three main Italian mutual aid societies from 1904 to 1966: Sons of Italy, the Veneta and the Vancouver Italian-Canadian associations. Full of fascinating photographs and intimate family histories, Vancouver's Society of Italians is rich in stories of individuals who came to British Columbia seeking personal fortune and a better way of life. This compelling social history is written with great sensitivity by Ray Culos, a second generation Italian-Canadian whose knowledge and commitment to the community are recognized among his peers. The heart of the book is the first-hand accounts of how the early immigrants established their community and nurtured the business leaders, labourers and professionals who have contributed so much to Canadian culture.
