"The Powell brothers, Muir and Moody, are as different as Cain and Abel. Muir is an innocent, a shy young man with big dreams and not the slightest idea of what to do about them. Moody, the older and wilder brother--embittered by the death of his father, by years of fighting his mother, and by his jealousy of Muir's privileged place in the family--takes to moonshine and gambling and turns his anger on his brother. Muir escapes, hoping to find something--an occupation, a calling--to match his ambition."--Jacket.
