Summary :

Snow in the River, originally published in 1964, was acclaimed Idaho novelist Carol Ryrie Brink's bestselling adult novel. It brings to life an America of unbounded promise, telling the story of three Scottish brothers who settled in eastern Washington and Northern Idaho in the early 1900s. For Angus McBain, America represents a profound moral dilemma. Should he seek personal gain or serve others? Willie McBain accepts whatever hardships and rewards life has to offer. Though economic rewards elude him, Willie might well have been the most successful of the three brothers. Douglas McBain is absorbed by success and failure and sees ample of each. Driven by all-consuming ambition he temporarily gains a great fortune and wins a beautiful wife. But his eventual fall is the most precipitous of all.
