Ascension, Paperback Book

Description

As a young Romany boy in Transylvania in the early years of the twentieth century, Salvo Usari's mother and father are killed in a tragic fire.

Forced to flee his village, leaving his brother and sister behind him, Salvo embarks on a lifetime's odyssey that takes him through the dark forests of his homeland, to the bustling streets of Budapest - where he learns the skills of a wire-walker - and eventually to the United States.

There he is reunited with his family, finds fame, and eventually risks everything to perform one final - death-defying - high wire act, as he walks between the twin towers of the World Trade Center...
