Wheat songs : a Greek-American journey / Perry Giuseppe Rizopoulos with William A. Meis, Jr.
"'Wheat Songs' is a memoir of two interconnected Greek-American Odysseys--an actual physical journey for the grandfather, Pericles Rizopoulos, and a philosophical quest by the author, Perry Giuseppe Rizopoulos. When the grandfather, Pericles Rizopoulos, a proud old man, tells his fascinating, tragic and true stories of the Nazi occupation of Greece during World War II and the following Greek Civil War, to his 20-something grandson, Perry Giuseppe Rizopoulos, Perry's philosophical reflections on his grandfather's stories along with his own memories of growing up in his extended Greek/Italian/American family in the Bronx combine to create an enduring story about the strength created by a strong, tightly-knit family and the powerful values passed down from generation to generation"-- Provided by publisher.
