Salom Rizk, author of this autobiography, was born in 1909 in a tiny poverty-stricken town in Syria. Two brothers and an uncle in Iowa paid his passage to the United States, but he arrived penniless, homeless and with no knowledge of the language. The story of his incredible experience in self-education and his rise to one of the most sought-after and inspirational speakers on American lecture platforms is contained in "America, more than a Country." Out of love for America and his long time friendship with Salom Rizk, Rev. Harold Schmidt has revised Rizk's autobiography, capturing the essence of the original text and added thoughts about his personal experience.
