For centuries, her ancestors had inhabited the beautiful little country surrounded by the Dolomite Mountains.

Years later, driven by a desire to preserve her heritage, Anna began collecting documents, anecdotes, articles, and old photographs. Casada: A History of an Italian Village and Its People contains the fruits of her exhaustive research. Half a world away, Isabel Comis Degenaars also grew up hearing stories of Casada shared by her father, whose parents immigrated to America in the 1920s in search of work and the chance to start a new life.

Its a book for story-lovers, for Italian immigrants, for anyone who has ever felt pulled to his or her past for unknown reasons.

Above all, Casada: A History of an Italian Village and Its People is a book for those who long for a return to a family that seems almost lost now. It is a book for those who wish to return home.
