I received the audiobook free in exchange for an honest review.
One thing I love about L'Amour's work is the poetry of his words, his love of nature and the country, and of the history of the country/world. This story does not disappoint.
Rock Bannon joins a wagon train heading for California. He had been injured and Sharon Crockett nurses him back to health. The train stops at an army fort and is joined by Mort Harper, a smooth talking man with ideas of his own.
Crossing the salt deserts of Utah, on a trail suggested by Harper, the train stops in a rich valley owned by Rock Bannon's father. The settlers are persuaded by Harper to stop there and raise a town, rather than move on towards California. Little do they know the Harper has his own reasons for befriending the settlers. He wants the valley. Soon there are lines in the dust and hell to pay.
As usual, there is action, there are fights, and there is gunplay. And at the end of it .... Rock goes after the woman he loves.
Another great read from L'Amour, but I never expect anything less.
