Ty Calder was not brought up on Calder land. He has had to learn the ways of ranch life. One of those more than willing to teach him is Jessy. Jessy is a tomboy who has grown up on the land and can and will do anything any man can do.

Ty is determined to go off to university and learn about agriscience and new ways of ranching. There he meets Tara, beautiful and wise in the ways of business and politics.

The ranch needs some influx of capital. Will Ty, lured on by Tara agree to let the coal be min

I read the whole Calder series a few years back after reading one of the newer ones and realizing it was part of a series. I enjoyed them all for the most part; was surprised when a couple of the heroes were killed off in their stories. This book sticks out in my mind because I always thought that the song "I'm Not That Girl" from Wicked was perfectly Jessy's song when Ty is infatuated with Tara.

I actually read an early edition but couldn't find a listing for it. I went through a Janet Daily phase when the kids were young and I really enjoyed the Calder Saga. Daily has added to it over the years and I always enjoy visiting with the Calder's again.

Started reading this series in the 80's. I think the last one was published just a couple of years ago. I've enjoyed them all, especially the early ones set in the old west. The newer one's are contemporary. It follows a large ranch owning family through the generations.

Loved It!!

Another great read in the Calder series. Love, romance, heartbreak, mystery it has it all. You won't be disappointed.
Wow so far Ty is the worst calder in my opinion. Found this calder a bit on the weak and gullible side. Just had no patience to his willful blindness when it came to Tara.
