Description:
 What happens to a family already on the brink of disaster when the world around them crumbles? "Dandelions for Dinner: Greece at War and a Family's Dreams of America" presents a memoir set in the small town of Gargaliani, Greece. Told through the eyes of a 13-year-old boy, the story unfolds from the end of the 19th century throuh the Greek Civil War of the 1940s. It is an epic tale of youth, family, poverty, war and unjust loss. "Dandelions for Dinner" is the surprising story of what remains when everything else is lost.
