Physical Description

724 pages : maps ; 23 cm


In the early 1900s, as Russia's imperial rule takes its toll on Finland, the three Koski siblings--Ilmari, Matti, and their sister Aino--are forced to flee to the United States. Not far from the majestic Columbia River, they settle among other Finns in a logging community in southern Washington, where the first harvesting of the colossal old-growth forests begets rapid development, and radical labor movements begin to catch fire. The brothers face the excitement and danger of pioneering this frontier wilderness--climbing and felling trees one-hundred meters high; Aino devotes herself to organizing the industry's first unions.
