Race of the Tiger

Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton Release date: 2014-07-24

Description

Born into the appalling deprivation of Nineteenth Century Ireland, Jess O'Hara and his high-spirited sister, Karen, flee their impoverished homeland to seek a new life in America. Exhausted after a nine-week crossing in an overcrowded, disease-ridden 'coffin ship', they arrive in Pittsburgh - the tumultuous steel capital of the United States. Surrounded by smoke and fire-belching chimneys, they struggle to adapt to this alien world. At first resisting the tug of easy wealth, Jess forsakes his fellow immigrants and bulldozes his way to fame and fortune, exploiting the love of two women to become a financial tiger in a city where only the strong and ruthless prevail.
