Summary

Feruggi talks about his father, who was a miner, and how Feruggi's family followed him over to America. The family also farmed extensively as well as operated a small milking venture, so he is able to give many details of an average day on a small Italian farm. The participation of the family in World War II and sleigh riding during the winter are other interesting topics. Recorded at Iron Mountain, Michigan.
