Publisher's Summary

They came by river and by wagon train, braving the endless distances of the Great Plains and the icy passes of the Sierra Nevada. They were men like Linus Rawlings, a restless survivor of Indian country who’d headed east to see the ocean but left his heart - and his home - in the West. They were women like Lilith Prescott, a smart, spirited beauty who fled her family and fell for a gambling man in the midst of a frontier gold boom. These pioneering men and women sowed the seeds of a nation with their courage - and with their blood. Here is the story of how their paths would meet amid the epic struggle against fierce enemies and nature’s cruelty, to win for all time the rich and untamed West.

I thought the movie was good!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

No wonder they made a movie out of this book! This book is outstanding! The fascinating lives of the family tree that begins out east and moves across the continent kept me hooked, wanting to keep listening to see how the story would unfold. I sat up late night at night skipping sleep to listen to the book, not wanting to stop but keep going. Great book, well written!!! Highly recommended!!!

Needs a new narrator

The book may be great. The narration is horrible! Reader moves two quick between characters. Hard to follow who is speaking.
