    Fascinating and entertaining

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It amazes me how different life used to be. I wished that the book hadn't ended, I wanted to read more and learn about what it was like on the train and the cowboys' reunions with their families. The book had some issues with formatting and errors in copying, but I was still able to understand most of it. I would have enjoyed an editted copy better.
