Following his father’s death, the author inherited his wartime letters from WW II, and in them learned much about the man from whom he’d grown distant, emotionally at first and then geographically. He decided to trace his father’s route, from just north of Naples, to Rome, Florence, Verona and finally to Desenzano, guided by passages from the letters and books on the division’s combat history. A blend of memoir, history and travelogue, Every Day Since Desenzano details a son’s discovery of his father’s greatest gift: the importance of gratitude. The book includes forty-two pages of excerpts from his father’s wartime letters and journal, making it a collaborative project.
A how-to of improving the health, nutrition and water for people around the world.
“He is talented: able to secure work, develop schools, and convince others to aid these selfless efforts, especially in education. And he is responsible: responsible to the farmers in the co-ops he led, responsible to the students he taught, responsible to the volunteers he prepped and supported, and responsible to his family above all. His work touched the lives of thousands.” — Will Newman, former Country Director, Peace Corps/Nepal.
