KIRKUS REVIEW

Poetic in the Irish rhythms, but definitely not a popular type of thing, in spite of the general motif -- ""lot native feuds die and join together in a new country."" It is a story of Orangemen, Irish, English, Welsh and Scots in a western Pennsylvania tinmill community in the late '90's' and early century. A German has built up the mine, and when he refuses to deal with the miners' requests, he imports hankies to work at lower rates. Internment during the war puts things into his son's hands, and the son is in sympathy with labor's new front, supported by his love for Lean Slane, the central character of the story.
