Portuguese Spinner: An American Story is truly a community endeavor involving editors, writers, photographers, interviewers and researchers, it tells a story that in a paradoxical sense is both old and new.
It is new because it focuses on persons of a Portuguese descent who left their homes in Portugal, the Azores, the Madeiras or other islands to settle on Cape Cod or in nearby cities. It is old because while the characters have changed, the story has been told before, the always remarkable tale of impoverished immigrants leaving their homes in foreign lands, seeking and usually achieving a better life in America.
With a detailed bibliography, index and numerous rare photographs complementing the lyrical and often humorous oral histories, Portuguese Spinner is truly a one-volume library, to be read and treasured.
