Suspenseful and intriguing novel. MR. West has a way with words that will keep you on the edge of your seat. A great way to enjoy the wild west from the comfort and safe abode while vicariously living the exploits of such fearless characters. I would recommend this novel to everyone blessed with the ability to read.
At first I thought it was about the Donner saga all over, but this was different.
