 1.  I Came To America
Francois Alain Borny
2006, 5½x8½, paper, 390 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
I Came to America recounts the incredible life story of François Alain Borny, written in a charming style that conveys his sense of adventure and wonder. It is a treasure for anyone that reads it; a riveting tale of places and events that few people will ever experience. From pre-World War II era Europe to today’s United States, I Came to America relates a physical, emotional and sometimes spiritual journey. The author’s childhood in occupied France was an ordeal: “starvation, curfew, arbitrary arrest, torture, execution of resistants, and deprivation of freedom.” His father worked in the secret underground despite continuous harassment from the German Gestapo and SS until the American Expeditionary Corps debarked in Provence on August 15, 1944, and liberty was restored. France struggled in the aftermath of the war, “torn apart by the multiplicity of political parties, some of which were more inclined on the Soviet ideology than on the western principals.” Join François Alain Borny as he leaves his homeland in search of the American dream, and experience a multitude of adventures—some too marvelous to believe. Readers will travel with the author from Europe to Africa to Haiti and to many other exotic places with a flare for the unusual and romantic.
