"Through the Apennines and the Land of the Abruzzi" by Estella Canziani is a spectacular, out of print, book and the picture shown is one of many that the author painted of the Abruzzi area.  Viewers with an interest in Italian superstition will enjoy  Estella's circa 1919 trek in the Isernia area  as she converses with  medieval-like inhabitants. 

Hammonton NJ

"The Italians on the Land", a government report written by Emily Fogg Meade, the mother of Margaret Meade, about the original Italian settlers of Hammonton, NJ and their challenges to carve an agricultural  town out of a wooded, sandy area.
