I loved the simplicity of this storyline and how things appear to go from great to worse in a minute. When Cassie Lockwood learns after her performance at Lockwood and Talbot Wild West Show, that her Uncle Jason has squandered all the money the show has been making on some poor business decisions, he has left the show broke and now being handed over to the bank to pay the debts still owed. Now with only whatever supplies she can gather together in a gypsy-style wagon along with a few cattle, horses, her faithful dog, Othello, and a hand-raised buffalo named George, and heads out to find a place that her father promised to take her to, known as the Valley of Dreams. Yet he died before he was able to fulfill that promise.

Now banded together with her friends Micah and Chief, they head out to the Black Hills to search for the land her father told her about. Along the way she is challenged beyond belief, with challenges of striking out on her own and not knowing what her future holds. Left with meager supplies and a roll of money, she doesn't have any idea where she's headed, relying on the memories her father told her of what the valley looked like, unfortunately Mother Nature has other plans when an unexpected blizzard rolls in and buries them in snow and cold temperatures. Will they find the valley before they lose any of the animals or her traveling companions?

I received this book compliments Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review, and loved the independence and strength that emanates from the character of Cassie. Still dealing with the deaths of her parents, she is now forced to make a change from the life she has known since birth! I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars and is the first book in an exciting new series, Wild West Wind.
