Riassunto: In a story set in turn-of-the-century America, Massimino leaves his Italian village to seek a new life for himself in the New World, working hard and saving money to buy a farm despite his homesickness for his friends, family, and beloved Perina.

From School Library Journal: Grade 1-3-Sharing the immigrant experience with young readers is a worthy goal. However, in this brief tale in which a young man from Italy finds work in America's coal mines, the poetic imagery of the prose style overwhelms the story line. It is difficult to relate to Massimino's ocean journey, struggles, and long years of work, because the dreamlike quality of the text belies the hard facts of the obstacles he must overcome. One cannot help but compare the lyricism and understated truths so evident in Allen Say's Grandfather's Journey (Houghton, 1993) with this account. The somewhat odd perspective of Ray's full-color illustrations are consistent with the story's mood, but the personalities of Massimino and his true love, Perina, who joins him at the end, are not individualized enough in this rather primitive artistic style. In fact, the hugeness of some images, such as trains, tunnels, and animals, tends to dwarf the main characters, much as the excessive verbiage obscures the point. The transitions from the harsh reality in the coal mines, to Massimino's fantasy of owning a small farm, and his memories of the "old country" are also difficult to follow. The story of immigrants' struggles and achievements has been told often and well in a variety of picture books for this age group; only libraries with a large demand for the subject should consider this purchase.
