Summary:
"Can following the footsteps of one of history's most colorful figures lead to an unusual travel adventure? Absolutely. Giuseppe Garibaldi led freedom fighters on two continents, unified Italy, and almost headed America's Union Army. His statues stand in cities around the world. So what do people today think of his accomplishments? In Looking for Garibaldi, John and Nancy Petralia discover that answer and more as they explore, often in hilarious ways, the places Garibaldi lived and fought, and how their lives parallel his. In stories of gun wielding gauchos, Italian family roots, nautical Christmas displays, historic battles, young lovers, old soldiers, tango missteps and travel with friends, the Petralias remind us that life's most memorable moments often begin by taking a chance." -- page [4] cover.
