    I picked up this book when I saw that Larry McMurtry, the author of my all time favorite book 'Lonesome Dove,' gave it high marks. I must say I am glad I took his advice. This is a story of the modern American west. Molly Mendoza, has just left her fiancé after finding him in bed with her best friend. Her future life crushed, she stumbles into a job at Granite Creek Pack Station in California's rugged eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains. She has no Idea what she is in for but she soon falls in love with the Mountains and the Lifestyle. Brumfield does an excellent job of developing the characters that work for the pack station. I soon came to feel they were my friends. And his descriptions of the high mountains are amazing (I went on line and googled some of the places he describes, like Shepards Pass, and they are amazing! I did not know places like this existed in California!). I had the feeling that though this is fiction, the author was writing about real people and things that actually happened. There is also plenty of drama and action here to keep you turning pages. I have to say I have not read anything like it since 'Lonesome Dove.' The author nailed this one and I am sure it will become a classic tale of the modern west!
