They were enticed by promises of fabulous wealth, but their dreams were often shattered by fate and lawless violence. Some were brave, lusty men who felled the giant trees of virgin forests. Others were lonely, brutal men who wanted their women the way they wanted their land: possessions to conquer and tame. Washington! The tattered union flag flies high over America as ...more

I really liked this book :)
Enter stage left Toby Holt.
I honestly wanted Toby and Beth Blake to get together. But with Rob, I don't mind him, it doesn't feel the same. And I like Clarissa, but to me it just doesn't feel the same.
And do I approve of General Blake and Eulalia? I feel like even though we grew attached to Cathy Blake and Whip Holt, I feel like Lee and Eulalia should go for it.
I really liked this book, and I can't wait to read the next!

More of the same Wagons West series. Don't know if I will make it through the entire set. It is interesting but very predictible. In this book our here Toby Holt and his partner Rob Martin more to Tumwater Washington to begin their logging company careers. They get sidetracked by the governor who wants them to survey the area for the proposed railroad line, so of course, they do that. They also have to deal with a town bully who creates havoc.

RAIDERS OF LITTLE HOUSE!!! Toby Holt goes on a dangerous mission to free the Washington logging community of Tumwater from the influences of greedy land baron and general nuisance Tom Harrison. It soon gets personal when Harrison kidnaps a 5-year-old girl. Soap opera-ish at times but a lotta fun.

Recommends it for: Fans of American History fiction
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.

Definitely enjoyed this one better than the last, and glad I will no longer have to hear about Whip's arthritis. This is the last one of these that I own. However they are available at the library so I may continue on, but a series of 24 is seriously too long.

Not a great book by any stretch of the imagination, but it's always fun when the setting is where you are!

Great story as all of the books in this series have been. you'd never know that more than one author was involved in writing all the books! I can't wait to read the next book.

Excellent- the 3 Indian nations- band together to fight the settlers and the army. A wonderful series on life on the frontier and the settling of the West.

If this is the one where two 'main' characters died....I cried! And if it's also the one where two moms try to push their children never works, Mom....just let Nature take its course?
