Overview

At the end of the War Between the States, great numbers of rootless, exhausted men and women set out to try and rebuild their lives in the unmapped, untamed freedom of the Great Plains.

Noble McCurtain had been sickened by the slaughter of the war—he deserted, seeking a place where he could live in peace. Fleta Corey had waited years for her husband to return from the war, trying desperately to keep herself and her little boy alive. Noble chanced by their cabin just in time to save them from a murderous band of raiders, and they decided to join forces and head west…

There, on the Santa Fe Trail, they would find not the peace they were seeking, but danger and death, and love and hope.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
At the end of 1864, Noble McCurtain moves from Arkansas to the Kansas prairie with Fleta Corey and her son to establish a trading post. Business blossoms with the various Indian tribes and settlers going West after the Civil War. The only memorable character is a freed slave, Sudan Wilson, who, along with a tiny band of Osage Indians, befriends McCurtain. Richards might have developed a far more interesting story with Sudan as the central character--his relationship with a captive Comanche woman whom he rescues from some Wichitas is especially interesting--but his potential is as underdeveloped as everything else in this dreary novel. The author resolves the thin plot almost as an afterthought with a final showdown between McCurtain and a white renegade. Not recommended.-- Robert Jordan, Univ. of Iowa, Iowa City
