Emigration is often perceived as a one-way journey -- leaving one's homeland and arriving in, and adjusting to, a new country. In fact, it can be a much more complex and long-drawn-out process than this. The small village of San Fior lies in northeastern Italy. Between 1900 and 1997, more than 200 of its residents emigrated to Perth, forming a closely linked Italian-Australian community. Many of them, and their Australian-born children and grandchildren, have since made "visits home." This book explores the effect of these visits, both on those who left San Fior and those who stayed there. pp.xi, 395 illusts #0518 First Edition. (Book encased in protective wrap.)
