The Campbell Quest: A Saga of Family and Fortune (hardback)


Though Robert Campbell saw immense success in his public affairs, his family life was wrought with difficulty. Author Patrick McCulloch offers interesting insight into Campbell’s relationship with the family he left behind in Ireland, the deaths of 10 of his 13 children and the demise of the Campbell line in 1938 in this hardcover edition. Family letters and diaries provide authentic firsthand accounts both of nineteenth-century life on an Irish farm and of pioneer life on the American western frontier. They also show how increasing wealth caused the unity of a close and loving Irish family to disintegrate into discord and personal violence.
