bookshelves: historical-fiction
Read in January, 1982

This is a classic Pittsburgh novel, but also a very good novel for those interested in the late 19th century immigrant experience. It tells the tale of a steelworking family and their neighbors trying to make it in a hardscrabble and dangerous environment in what was then the booming steel town of Braddock, Pa. (now a virtual ghost town)
