Many of these were Italians who eventually travelled north of the border into Canada. Told through firsthand accounts and personal testimonies, Sbarco a Ellis (Landing at Ellis) chronicles the emotion-filled journeys of three Italian Canadian women and their families, including award-winning Canadian writer, novelist and essayist Terri Favro.
