A stunningly expansive family saga of anguish, reinvention and courage from the bestselling author of Matterhorn.
In the early 1900s, as the oppression of Russia's imperial rule takes its toll on Finland, the three Koski siblings - Ilmari, Matti and the politicized young Aino - are forced to flee to the western edges of the United States. The brothers face the excitement and danger of pioneering this frontier wilderness. But while they are tearing down ancient, colossal trees, Aino is striving to build up the country's first radical union movements.

In lucid, luminous prose, Marlantes masterfully depicts the tyranny of nascent America, the limits of human survival and the enduring might of family love. Karl Marlantes graduated from Yale University, was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University and served as a Marine in Vietnam, where he was awarded the Navy Cross, the Bronze Star, two Navy Commendation Medals for valor, two Purple Hearts and ten air medals. He is the author of the international bestseller Matterhorn and What It Is Like to Go to War. He now lives in Washington state.
