The Valley of the Giants

Peter B. Kyne

Pride!  Envy!  Greed!

The Valley of the Giants by Peter B. Kyne is a spectacular novel that takes place near Humboldt Bay in the fictional town of Sequoia in California.

John Cardigan and his son, Bryce Cardigan, face numerous, often insurmountable challenges from the time they found the logging town through the on-going rivalry with Colonel Pennington as they battle over logging rights and other business matters. When Bryce Cardigan falls in love with Pennington’s niece, battle lines are drawn and Shirley is forced to take sides.

Although the plot involves numerous business dealings, the heart-wrenching tales of love and romance weaved throughout make this a beautiful, satisfying read. This late 19th century novel beautifully portrays the power of a woman who transcends power, politics, family feuds, and loyalties for honor and true love.
