Publisher's Summary

It all started with a storm, a real gully washer, the type that comes racing across the plains with driving rain, howling winds, and hail as big as your fist. If it hadn't been for the stranger in buckskins, the Jakes family would have been in serious trouble. Little did they know, the storm was just the beginning of their struggles.
They'd come to Colorado to raise a new breed of horse. Along the trail they would follow were new friends, old enemies, and the land. At times it was hard to tell which ones were the most dangerous. It would take all of their fortitude and the help of kind-hearted strangers to keep the dream alive.

Very entertaining - hard to put down

I really enjoyed this book. I enjoy Westerns, and this book had a nice mixture of perspective from both the "white man" and the Native American, as well as Spanish culture. I really enjoyed the characters, especially Martha, and thought that they were really well-developed. This book definitely held my attention throughout its entirety. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book narrated by Michael Welte. I thought he was a great choice for the narrator because he has a very deep and gritty voice that just enhanced the book even more. Overall, a very entertaining book - I'm glad I had a chance to listen to this one.

Excellent tale of settling the West

This audiobook with keep you captivated with its tales of pioneer days and of settling the West. Set just as the civil war is coming to an end, it gives a taste of both the white man’s and the Native American’s prospective. There is both a sense of loss and of hope, as one way of life comes to an end and another begins. The beauty of the environment, the difficulties of change, the need for love and the reality that there are good people and bad people within all races comes through well in this story. The narrators accents and deep, mellow voice fit this story perfectly; invoking the feeling of the wildness, danger and the unpredictability of life in the West. You soon become attached to the characters and want to see then succeed, while at the same time you mourn for the loss of freedom and the native’s way of life. I do hope the author produces more audiobooks with these characters, as I would love to hear more of their lives.
