Description

The first book in bestselling author Howard Fast's beloved family saga

"A most wonderful book...there hasn't been a novel in years that can do a job on readers' emotions that the last fifty pages of The Immigrants does." -Los Angeles Times

In this sweeping journey of love and fortune, master storyteller Howard Fast recounts the rise and fall of a family of roughneck immigrants determined to make their way in America at the turn of the century. Quick to ascend from the tragic depths of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, Dan Lavette becomes the head of a powerful shipping empire and establishes himself among the city's cultural elite. But when he finds himself caught in a loveless marriage to the daughter of San Francisco's richest family, a scandalous love affair threatens to destroy the empire Dan has built for himself.

The first of a compelling family saga, The Immigrants is a fast-paced, emotional novel that captures the wide range of relationships among immigrant families during the tumultuous events that defined the early twentieth century in America.

"A non-stop page-turner...moving, vivid...a splendid achievement " - Erica Jong

"Howard Fast is fiercely American. He is one of ours, one of our very best " -Los Angeles Times

"Warmth...Power...Tenderness...Excitement...Readers will find themselves anxiously awaiting the sequel." -Columbus Dispatch
