This week Sandy interviews Joe Montalbano, a 4th generation Italian American whose great grandfather, Francesco Montalbano, immigrated to America in the late 1800s and made his way to Houston where he founded Montalbano Lumber in 1900. Francesco started a lumber dynasty all from the humble beginnings of selling firewood. But Francesco was not alone, and the Montalbano wives were also instrumental in the building of this Houston dynasty.
