More About Of Two Worlds by Peter Canton
 
 
 
Overview
World War II buffs, German-Americans, and students of German history-especially World War II history-will love this collection of stories that focus on German life during and immediately after the war. The stories also extend to author Peter Canton's journey to America with his family as a young immigrant and the rocky reception he receives in an America for which the war is still an open wound and Germans are not easily forgiven. Of Two Worlds reveals that Peter "Pedro" Canton is a very complex man. This is no surprise since he came of age among the shadows of war-torn Germany. His story unfolds with many paradoxes and contradictions as he escapes the turmoil of war for a new life in America. Especially remarkable is that he has lived with overwhelming optimism and a zest for life.
