"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 Immigrantsdoes."--Los Angeles Times

The first book in bestselling author Howard Fast's beloved family saga, The Immigrantsis a transcendent work of historical fiction.

In this sweeping journey of love and fortune, master storyteller Howard Fast recounts the family saga 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 novel of a compelling family saga, The Immigrantsis fast-paced, emotional historical fiction that captures the wide range of relationships across Immigrant America during the tumultuous defining events of the early twentieth century.
