Twelve-year-old Nino Buffa was already an experienced
stowaway when he ran away from home to find Mussolini. At fifteen he joined the Italian Navy. Two years
later, under German fire, he piloted the warship Vivaldi
through dangerous ocean waters during World War II.
Packed with adventure and history, this fascinating
biography is the coming-of-age story of Sicilian immigrant
Nino Buffa who would not give up until he found a better
life in America.
