Synopsis: George Kraka, a Slovak peasant who leaves home in 1881 to work in the steel mills of Braddock, Pennsylvania, and his family endure the changing fate of immigrants and their children over the next two generations.
From the Back Cover: The novel begins in the mid-1880s with the naive blundering career of Djuro Kracha. It tracks his arrival from the old country as he walked from New York to White Haven, his later migration to the steel mills of Braddock, and his eventual downfall through foolish financial speculations and an extramarital affair.
