This is the story of the original American Dream, what being a man used to be, and the extremes that used to be celebrated in America. It is a story of the son of an Italian immigrant from Chicago and a Daughter of the American Revolution from the farm. It is about growing up in both cultures and the exciting extremes to be found in both. It is a story of going from rags to riches and from working in a foundry as a laborer to rising to the executive boardroom in a global business with world class achievements. This book is about the extremes America can offer and it takes you from private jets and yachts to being attacked by bears and sleeping under a rock in the Arctic Circle. From working down on the farm to working with the Pentagon and White House. From high powered business executives and hundreds of millions of dollars to the helpless at Dixon State Mental Hospital and homeless shelters. This book takes you from a tiny rural town in down state Illinois to Rome, Paris, Shanghai, Mexico City, London, and Bangkok. And from the luxury of a Doges Palace in Venice to sailing through hurricane force winds and wading in a putrid swamp hunting wild boar. Those of us that have had the privilege of living the real American dream have an obligation to keep it alive and remind others why this country has been so great and to try and to keep those experiences alive for future generations. That is the goal of this book.
