Loved this. I found the letters which formed the bulk of the book to be so involving and compelling. I felt like I was right there with the characters. I did find myself a bit confused in the last part, and went back and read the beginning again - which felt reasonable because so much had happened in-between.

Bought this book yesterday. I picked it up last night, expecting to read for an hour or so. So poignant, so interesting to read, I couldn't put it down until the last page was read.
Enjoyed the time and setting of the early West in the novel.
