Family saga -- very sentimental and a bit on the sketchy side. Richard Cameron, hard old-world self-made multimillionaire, looks back over his life. How the little Scotch boy made good, from Civil War to oil fields; a widower left with six children to mismanage; his aim money and more money. Each child has his chapter, and there is even space devoted to grandchildren. Various lives and loves and tragedies keep up the pace, and the story is not cheap in the handling, merely thin and over-sentimental, over-played. Light reading with all the ingredients -- romance and heart-break -- a New Orleans setting -- poverty and riches. Lacks only a happy ending.
