Another great book in this series.
Jennifer Gelert
This is a re-read for me. I discovered his Wagon's West series years ago. I loved the combination of history with romance, drama and mystery. This book takes place before Colorado becomes a federal territory. Gold has just been discovered and everyone is in a rush to make their fortune. General Lee Blake and his wife Cathy, who traveled with the first wagon train return in this book. We hear how he is on a secret mission from the president to determine if gold and silver are in those hills and i ...more

It was an ok story but it seemed like the same scenarios are being rehashed. Only thing that changed is geography.
This book, as was the entire series, was light and entertaining. I read the entire series and the Holt Dynasty series (except the last one). It seems that toward the end the character of the books changed from the adventure of populating the U.S. To books about the relationships between characters. It also appears the author begin to lose interest in the project and tried to move it along to the finish. However, after (about) 33-34 books I was ready to be finished too. Still, books with familiar ...more

This series started out good but as it progresses the books become duller and duller.

#7 in the Wagons West series.

I made my mistake by assuming from that the synopsis would be a good read. But it certainly does not cater to my taste. The novel is too community oriented when I was looking for action-packed fun.
Less characters and more depth would be my cup of tea, but then again it is a community, with some characters I could not care less.
Excellent- the story goes on with some of the same characters. About gold being discovered in Colorado in 1858.

May sound somewhat repetitive here but I got hooked on the first book and it was like an addiction.
The author shows how the westward movement affected families and individuals while placing them within history itself.
Oh, it was OK but not my favorite. The historical part of the settling of Colorado in the 1860's due to the gold rush was interesting. Maybe the authors style of writing was a little too superficial. Anywho...
Found the story of Caroline a little repetitious of Melissa's story in California...but still a page turner!
I listened to this book. It does have plenty of excitment in it.
