  8. Fay Risner Fay Risner says:

    Good historical western and romance about a young couple, trying to keep the vast holdings of free land they claimed Plenty of action because of a crooked banker, wrestlers and Indians Plenty of conflict between the couple Benteen a strong, stubborn man who likes being boss Lorna a young, strong willed woman who wants to her husband s partner and not just his wife.


  9. Sandra Sorola Sandra Sorola says:

    The beginning of what will be an epic series I truly enjoyed the reread I love how the series sweeps generations of a determined family to protect the land and their life The old west was built on family, strength and determination Not to mention Cattle If you love the old west and the settling of the US, you will enjoy this book.

    Loved itWhile the characters developed I learned to love them and to hate them I cried and laughed and thought deeply of the hardships of the 1800 s At times I am envious and at others I am glad to live in this century.
