Beschreibung:

Robert O'Rourke, bastard son of a Belfast scullery maid, came to America in 1820. He started life in a nation that was experiencing the ups and downs of the start of the Industrial Revolution. by working in one of Lowell's first mills. Anti-papists drove him north in 1821. He fled to Dover, New Hampshire to begin life anew. He married into one of the town's oldest families, earning his father-in-law's respect and his brother-in-law's hatred. Years passed and he amassed holdings in textiles, bricks, land, lumber, railroads and new inventions from Bangor, Maine to Chicago. He learned who his father was and what wealth and power the man left him. His life was entwined with historic happenings as inhabitants of a boisterous new nation strove to cope with government struggles, world recognition and the slavery question. As O'Rourke built his dynasty, even joining the '49 Gold Rush, family members, business associates and friends sought to find a place in the life of this melancholy man. All of this took place in a fast changing country in the years before the agony of secession and Civil War.
