This generational classic by the author of "Spartacus" is the story of Dan Lavette, the son of an Italian fisherman, who battles from the rubble of the San Francisco earthquake to build a fortune in the shipping industry.
From the Publisher:

In this first novel of an epic family saga, master storyteller Howard Fast recounts the rise of a poor fisherman's son from the cataclysmic depths of the San Francisco earthquake to become the head of a powerful shipping empire. He will risk all for a forbidden love.

The Immigrants evokes the emotion-ridden journey of rough hewn Dan Lavette as he builds a fortune in the shipping industry and marries into the gilded heights of Nob Hill society. Finding himself entombed in a loveless marriage to the daughter of San Francisco's richest family,Dan discovers solace and happiness with the beautiful daughter of a poor Chinese bookkeeper.

Author Bio
Howard Fast
Howard Fast, who once commented, "I have more unwritten stories in me than I can conceivably write in a lifetime," lived to be 88 and wrote more than 80 books, including such titles as CITIZEN TOM PAINE (1943), the best-selling FREEDOM ROAD (1944), and SPARTACUS (1953). Fast joined the Communist Party in 1943--a reaction to his impoverished New York City childhood; he was blacklisted and ended up serving time in a federal prison in 1950, convicted of contempt of Congress when he refused to cooperate with the House Un-American Activities Committee. (Disillusioned by Stalin, he left the party in 1956.) In addition to his popular novels, Fast also wrote mysteries (under the pseudonym E. V. Cunningham) about a Japanese Zen Buddhist who is also a detective in Beverly Hills. His last novel, GREENWICH (set in the Connecticut town where Fast himself lived) was published in 2000.
