Wouldn't it be phenomenal if a man could travel back in time and sit within a hostile Indian encampment, directly facing the legendary Lakota Chief Crazy Horse and listen to him tell you about the plight of his people? Or, what it would be like to stand on the brink of the Kingsbury Grade overlooking the Carson Valley, while conversing with the legendary Kit Carson, the man for whom the valley was named? Or, to stand on a high bluff in the Rocky Mountains and watch a Pony Express rider on his galloping pony deliver the mail? Or to be close enough to the Wounded Knee Massacre to hear the sounds of the gunfire? If you can imagine such a man being sent back in time, Zack Gentry could have been that person. Zack was also a man who loved his women, so there are a lot of strong women characters in his story-including "Calamity Jane" Cannary.
This is not a traditional Western novel, it's a capsulated history of the historical events and people during the time of America's westward expansion (with a little bit of "legend" thrown in!)
It's a great read for both men and women-young adults to old-timers.
