This is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. It made me laugh, cry, and the way love won out in the end was wonderful. — Beverly Willeford, Bev's Books (Highlands, TX)

Not only is one of our heroines being beaten by her fiancee on a daily basis but no wants to acknowledge it. Usually abusers isolate their victims but this guy doesn't bother. Though everyone is vaguely aware its happening no one steps up to the plate. In the middle of a cattle drive this poor slob is beaten and bruised and doesn't seem to have enough grit to yell for help. Her abuser is a weak little store clerk that nobody likes including her. So why does she put up with it? If he didn't fall in a creek an drowned she probably would have married him in the end. I expected the characters to grow from their experience. This ones weakness was jarring. The other characters were just as confused. I'm an Osborne fan. This was disappointing.

Take three primadonas, one scruffy ex drunken cowboy, an airtight will, throw in a few losers, and over 2,000 longhorn steers, and the wild west, and then sit back and enjoy a story that will take you into its world and make you feel the hardships, fun, and love that occurs on this journey. you learn to see the characters change before your eyes and you learn to respect them and root for Alex, Fredrick, Les, and Dal. And you wait patiently to see if the bad guys do get their comeuppence. I loved this story and found that it indeed took me away for awhile into its world of cowboys, indians, and damsals in 'distress' Go out and get this book and then get a warm mug of hot choclate and sit back and enjoy this story of guilty pleasures.
