Booklist Review
A cattle drive from Texas to Montana captures the history of the American West in truly epic fashion. The author takes almost every hoary tradition of the nineteenth-century western--i.e., the good-hearted scarlet lady, friendly and unfriendly Indians, strong-backed frontier folk--and gives each one new life and vitality.
