Publisher's Summary

Joseph Armagh was 13 when he first saw America through a dirty porthole on the steerage deck of The Irish Queen. It was the early 1850s, and he was a penniless orphan cast on a hostile shore to make a home for himself and his younger brother and infant sister. Some 70 years later, from his deathbed, Joseph Armagh last glimpsed his adopted land from the gleaming windows of a palatial estate. A multimillionaire, one of the most powerful and feared men, Joseph Armagh had indeed found a home. Captains and the Kings is the story of the price that was paid for it in the consuming, single-minded determination of a man clawing his way to the top.

A Long Slog!!! at first....

Thought i wouldn't make it to the end of this long saga...but I did and was pleased with myself....it was a bit superlative and I thought it really could be shorter...but as it got going the descriptive reading went unnoticed and I began to really enjoy the story of struggle and determination for this Irish family...so stick with it and you will not be disappointed...
