Three generations of the Demas family face the ups and downs of the twentieth century after their fathers leave the coal mines that drew them from Greece to America, become wool growers and small businessmen, and Americanize their Demopoulos name. As the years pass, the family accumulates untidy lives and tragedies. Parents seek to keep their children tightly bound by old-country customs, to arrange marriages, and to foist their views of women's inferiority on their daughters. Lia Papastamos in particular, child of a forced marriage between her Greek father and Amerikanidha mother, pulls away from the stifling burden of family tradition and interference, but she and her husband must contend with the decline that time, synthetics, and changing tastes bring to a once-thriving sheep business. Helen Papanikolas was one of Utah's most revered authors. Known and respected nationally and internationally as the preeminent narrator of the Greek American experience, appreciated in Utah particularly for her documentation of our multicultural history, she is widely admired as well for her storytelling through fiction and memoirs. Rain in the Valley, her last book, is a culmination. In a narrative rich with life, insight, and experience she portrays the generations of a Greek-American family. Their story is rooted in sheepherding, set primarily in Helper, Utah, and shaped by the changes that the twentieth century brings to them. Helen Papanikolas is widely known as the preeminent narrator of the Greek American experience. Her

Mia hellēnikē odysseia stēn amerikanikē dysē by Helen Papanikolas( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in Undetermined and held by 1 library worldwide
A Greek Odyssey in the American West begins with Helen Papanikolas's childhood in Helper, Utah, a way station for the Denver and Rio Grande Western railroad. Helper's population was as odd a conglomeration as could be found anywhere in the West: French sheepherders; Chinese and Japanese restaurant owners; African American, Greek, and Italian rail and coal workers; and Mormon, Jewish, and Slav businessmen. This book, however, is not Papanikolas's life story but the story of her parents' individual emigrations to the United States, their meeting and courtship, and their migrations within the West as they pursued job opportunities. Papanikolas re-creates and interprets the experience of parents who try hard to succeed in America without losing their rich heritage and who ultimately enrich the culture of their adopted country
