Historian, screenwriter, and best-selling author Win Blevins also won the Spur Award and the Mountains and Plains Booksellers Award for fiction. Here he taps his extensive knowledge of fur-trade era America to pen the continuing adventures of Sam Morgan.
Disenchanted by his return to Pennsylvania, 19-year-old Sam once again leaves home for the American plains. This time out, he is determined to rejoin Meadowlark, the Crow Indian maiden he was forced to abandon two years prior. He returns to her village and immerses himself in Crow traditions to earn her hand in marriage. But their reunion is short-lived, thanks to warring Lakotas and another suitor. Now Sam will have to overcome numerous perils to win Meadowlark’s heart for good.
The second installment of Blevins’ Rendezvous series, Beauty for Ashes takes listeners on a mesmerizing tour of early 19th-century America. Renowned narrator Ed Sala captures the wonder and awe in Sam’s grand plains adventures.
“Blevins’ lively fur-trading tales of the American West continue with this rousing [novel].” (Publishers Weekly)
