There is a lot going on in this epic wannabe, and while I enjoyed the book and found the narration quite good, the characters never fully engaged me emotionally, and moments that should have been wrenching left me unmoved.
The story line covered interesting historical events however as in the case of the characters the opportunity for descriptive explanations was ignored.
And on the pickiest of notes I find that listening to books as opposed to reading them makes me super-aware of how vocabulary is used. In this case the author was in love with the word "incredulous" and I found myself jarred out of the story as the word was repeatedly introduced.

Ned has suffered all his young life from various illnesses, so his mother sends him to a supposed sanitorium in Nebraska. Unfortunately for Ned, there is no such place, it was a con, and he is left to survive by skinning buffalo. Various people take advantage of the naiive young man, as he tries to make his way in the world.
