Journeys to the Heart of Balti is an autobiography written by Michael Olesker The story is intended for intermediate and advanced readers Olesker tells the stories told to him by friends and family, who are immigrants to America, about the journeys they encountered to become American The story begins with early immigration in the 1900 s and how his great grandparents assimilated into American ways I classify this as an autobiography because the stories told are about his life and why he is the way he is He continues to discuss his parents generation and also includes multiple other stories told from people of different nationalities He relays the struggles and hardships with great heart wrenching stories and pictures Since I have lived in Balti my whole life, I enjoy reading about places such as fells point and the inner harbor back in those days I have a good understanding now of how certain places came to be and their history It is amazing to learn about all the changes that have occurred here in the United States, especially in my hometown This book is appealing to young readers because it tells the true story of how families, the Olesker families in particular, were and still are able to become American, but still remain true to their culture The book can be used to instruct about sociology because lots of references are made to the study of the melting pot in our society I think children from Balti in particular will enjoy the book most It is cool to know the history of a place where you go often I will always think of the stories told by Olesker when visiting certain parts of Balti. Writing is incredibly boring, but I learned so much about Balti. {READ EBOOK} á Journeys to the Heart of Baltimore × In Journeys To The Heart Of Balti, Veteran Journalist Michael Olesker Writes Of The American Melting Pot Particularly Balti S In All Its Rollicking, Sentimental, Good Natured, And Chaotic Essence The Stories Come From Neighborhood Street Corners And Front Stoops, Playgrounds And School Rooms, Churches And Synagogues, And Families Gathered Around Late Night Kitchen Tables Think Of This As A Love Letter Across The Generations, Olesker Writes The D Alesandro Political Dynasty Comes To Life Here, And So Do The Legendary Balti Colts Lenny Moore And Artie Donovan The Old East Balti Ethnic Enclaves Nurture Youngsters Named Barbara Mikulski And Ted Venetoulis, And Out Of West Balti Comes The Future Afro American Newspaper Publisher Jake Oliver Journeys To The Heart Of Balti Is A Delightful Reminder Of The Nation S Ethnic And Racial Mosaic, Where A Future Mayor Named Martin O Malley And A Future Balti County Executive Named Dutch Ruppersberger First Learn About The Melting Pot Boys From Balti S Little Italy, Like John Pica, Go Off To Fight A War In Italy When They Know Their Allegiance Is Being Tested And A City Struggles Through Racial Convulsions, Remembered By Those Such As John Steadman And Father Constantine Sitaris We Overlap Or What S The Point Of America Olesker Writes We Compromise, We Shed The Garments Of The Past But We Simultaneously Strain To Hold Onto Yesterdays It Is The Hunger Of Memory
