When Vincenzo Macri and Caterina Italiano immigrated to 'L'America', as Australia was then known amongst the Calabrese of Italy, they were searching for a better life after the scourges of World War II; for a land so rich that even the pavements were made of gold." Instead, the author's parents were to endure great poverty and hardship before they saw any of the fabled 'gold' that had enticed them here. Gathering stories of generations past from her parents and siblings, Lena Elliott explores the dilemma that troubled many first generation Australian-Italians. How could she become the true Australian she longed to be whilst satisfying her parents' need for her to grow up Italian? Set in Beaufort River, Kojonup, in the southwest region of Western Australia, this true story documents the culture, beliefs, traditions and values brought to Australia by her parents' generation, and tracks her family's journey from surviving to thriving in the land of milk and honey, with no shortage of 'Bread on the Table'.
