Resumo

John Randolph Dos Passos and his son, John Roderigo, the noted author, were thoroughly North American, but they were proud of their Portuguese heritage. Father and son were intelligent, imaginative men with wide-ranging interests; it seems only natural that both would take an interest in their ancestral roots. The father, truly a self-made man of the Horatio Alger sort, was interested because he was proud of the fact that he had begun life as the son of a Portuguese immigrant, a man who was for a time a cobbler and a shoemaker. John Randolph, the first generation American born, rose to become a prominent, sometimes wealthy, corporation lawyer.
