Overview

The Adventure and Romance of America, her people, her spirit and the West. This is our story.

Sixth of thirty-three books of the Threads West An American Saga series—compared by reviewers, authors and readers to Lonesome Dove, Centennial, Louis L'Amour (with steam) and called by some the Gone with the Wind of the West and more authentic than Dances with Wolves. The multiple #1 bestselling series-winner of fourteen National Awards, (Historical Fiction, Romance, Western)-bursts with the adventure, romance and promise of historical America and the West.

A Confederate Army mustered in Texas is repulsed by the Denver Militia. The broken treaties between the white man and Native Americans spread into bitter and contagious conflicts throughout the West. The resolution of the Indian Problem leaves families and hearts broken, forever staining the pages of American history.

A tidal wave of hopeful souls follows on the trail of the strong men and women of Maps of Fate. Throngs of those displaced by the devastation of the Civil War add to the torrent of humanity flowing west. In the second, third, and fourth novels of the Maps of Fate Era: Uncompahgre, Moccasin Tracks, and The Footsteps), the first Thread's West generation born in the remote and sparsely settled west begins to mature and contend with this cauldron of events, their lives unsettled by personal tragedies, triumphs, loves and loss. Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and Montana evolve into separate and distinct territories, and then achieve statehood. Law and order struggles as outlaws linger on the outer edges and range wars erupt between the landowners and the landless, sheep herders, cattlemen and sod busters. The clash of cultures, creeds and beliefs, and bitter rivalries over the control of scarce water resources, fuels further violence and cruelty.
