Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 073850355X, Paperback)

Steel portrays the growth of the iron and steel industry in smoke-filled Pittsburgh during the nineteenth century. This fast-paced saga tells the story of millionaire steel titans Andrew Carnegie, Ben Franklin Jones, Henry Clay Frick, Henry Phipps and Charles Schwab--strong-willed men who often plotted and schemed against each other, yet united against their underpaid and undervalued pro-union immigrant workforce. The juxtaposition of the haves and the have-nots produced bloody battles that exploded throughout Western Pennsylvania's plants, mines and railroad yards.
