Sparrow[~•~] She lays in her tree and lays her mouse on the large branch. It lay looking limp and about to slide off, untouched. Instead, Sparrow watched the stars in the sky glumly and touched her feather necklace.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The history of the West is filled with heroic characters largely forgotten in our day -- not because they are undeserving, merely because the frontier required so many great men and women we haven't room for them all in our memories. With RUSH TO DESTINY Larry Jay Martin lifts one such hero out of obscurity and into the limelight of recognition he deserves. Edward F. Beale's adventures make for fascinating reading. He crosses from one side of the continent to the other repeatedly -- by boat, by mule train, by horseback, even aboard a camel. Not only does Beale make history himself, he knows and works with other, more famous pioneers including John C. Fremont, Stephen Watts Kearney, Robert Stockton, and others. Just as fascinating is Beale's lifelong fued with Norvell Johansen, a fictional character and perfect foil created by the author. All in all, a well-written good read with a lot to teach us about history.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
