This book chronicles the impact of the Capelinhos volcano on the people of the Azores Islands. The resulting hardship caused the last major wave of emigration from the Azores to the United States, during the period 1958-1975. Many of the immigrants settled in California, most of the rest on the East Coast in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
This book captures the calamity from all sides, with opinions, stories, photographs, even a video, by over 100 contributors, coordinated by Tony Goulart.
This book is another milestone in a series of research books by PHPC which will have increasing value for generations to come as the first-hand knowledge of these events passes on into history. This book will help tell the story of this generation of Portuguese immigrants to your grandchildren and beyond.
