A particular Calabrian mafia group in Ontario, Canada

Canadian writer Jerry Prager's Legends of the Morgeti 1909-1949 apparently became available for sale back in February. Prior to the publication of this book, Prager had written three volumes on this subject--the Calabrian mafia originating from San Giorgio Morgeto and that settled in Canada--the first and second of which are hard to find for sale unless you are willing to plunk down a lot of cash. The new book for sale seems to combine most if not all the material from the first two volumes (these two volumes comprise material dating to 1949/1950) and is only $25.00 Canadian. Prager plans to publish a second book that will include the material from volume 3 (this volume comprised material dating from 1950 to 1963), plus new material that will take the reader to 2001. Whether and when Prager is successful in publishing this second book remains to be seen.

See http://morgeti.blogspot.ca/2017/02/fina ... lable.html. I'd advise zooming in on the image to read what material from volumes 1 and 2 are not available in this new publication.

If you want to order the new book online, go to http://www.bookshelf.ca/product/view/9781896312118. Should you live outside of Canada, contact the bookseller to see whether it will ship to your country.

I received this book last Friday, but not without some mishaps, after having ordered it last Tuesday. These were especially caused by the bookseller's order page failing to mention what "Standard Shipping" entailed. (I was led to believe the item would be delivered by snail mail via Canada Post and would arrive in a week or two). I just want to warn even Canadian residents thinking of buying this book that you should probably check with the bookseller first to see how the item will be shipped because the bookseller may actually decide to send it by Canpar courier instead of by snail mail. As all of us know, receiving deliveries via courier isn't always possible or convenient, depending on where you live. If I had to do it all over again, I would have e-mailed the author at jerryprag@gmail.com to see whether I could directly order the book from him.
