5.0 out of 5 stars A delicious saga, 8 Jan. 1999
By A Customer
This is one of Harold Robbins' best and definitely worth reading. It's a delicious novel covering the life of a man from a poor family of farmers, from his teenager years as a coal miner to his death as one of the most powerful union leaders in the USA. The story of this man, Daniel Boone Huggins, is presented as his youngest son goes after his birth land and gets in touch with his father's origins, seeking to understand his father's ways in life. As usual with Robbins' books, real life characters get mixed in the story (Jimmy Hoffa is one of them), helping to improve the interest in the narration. Cutting to the chase: if you loved Mario Puzo's "The Godfather", go for this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most uplifting of all Robbins books, 29 July 1999
By A Customer
This is the life story of Big Dan Huggins, a hillbilly kid who worked his way up to be a major labor leader. It tells of his dedication to his kid sister beyond the call of what's expected of a big brother until she found Mr. Right, his estrangement from his only son until he died and the younger Huggins gained a new understanding of him. If you think "The Carpetbaggers" and "The Adventurers" was the extent of what Harold Robbins was about as a writer, read this, his "Herman Wouk book".

(REAL NAME)   
This book is what signifies Harold Robbins as one of the best writers. This was Harold Robbins at his best. The story is about Big Dan and the legacy he left, but he never really left, his story was told through his son, who hated his father-Big Dan, because he never truly understood him, but in the end........well you just have to read it. This is a book you will take everywhere with you, because you simply must know what happens next. I promise you, you will not be disappointed at all.
