Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Hardheaded Lonnie Kilgore and three fellow Texans race against time in the newest installment of the Trail Drive series. The men must reach their recently purchased land in northern Utah before winter or Mormons settle in first. Flush with California gold and new brides, the friends foresee a bright future in ranching, but before they can stake their claims, they must fight angry Paiutes, horse thieves, drunks, and even other settlers. After two harrowing months of travel, the party reaches the banks of the Green River--only to find that the Mormons have already arrived. The settlers prepare for an uncomfortable battle, with the harsh winter just around the corner. Luckily for the Texans, legendary mountain man Jim Bridger and a troop of Shoshone come to their aid. Compton's latest western (after Old Spanish Trail) plods along as reliably as Kilgore's quarter horse, serving occasional surprises from the women who determinedly save their husbands at every dangerous turn. (Oct.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    waste of time

    I love a good love story, I love a good Western story. This tried to be both and was neither. Too many main characters(so many a couple of them weren't even developed), too unrealistic. Sometimes it was sillier than a really bad romance novel. I hated the abrupt ending. It was like the writer was as tired of it as I was. A real disappointment.
