David Poyer's saga of Hemlock County explores northwestern Pennsylvania, that land where coal yielded to oil, the heart of American industrial power. These two linked novels (of the four yet written) tell the later life story of a powerful character, William Halvorsen, a tough, idealistic working man who lives in the shadow of, and sometimes in the employ of, Thunder Oil and its autocratic capitalist owner, Daniel Thunner. Halvorsen's times are times of violence, love, tragedy, betrayal, and triumph, hard times throughout, but always with the feeling that the struggleis worthwhile, that both pleasure and redemption are possible. The story of Halvorsen and of Hemlock County is the story of America's 20th century.
