Blurb: They came from Ireland""- shanty Irish they were called, and the potato famine had sent them across the sea to build the railroad, the work they knew and loved. But the canal people had it in for them, and the feuds extended to the youngsters. This is a family story of the O'Haras, and of how they saw it through until almost every member of the family had found a place in this new democracy of the mid 19th century. An unusual background of the building of the Toledo and Illinois, and a good story.
