Description

Autumn, 1837. Blazing onward from the eastern shores, to Missouri, the legendary wagon train sent by U.S. President Andrew Jackson has reached the last outpost of civilization. Now five hundred strong, these brave pioneers set a course across the great rolling plains toward the treacherous Rockies, hoping to stake a claim in the American West. Led by their new wagon master "Whip" Holt, they must unite as a team if they are to survive, despite their vast differences. For among them is an independent young woman who leaves everything she loves, a black man who dreams of freedom, a Native American who knows the harshness of the land…and hundreds of others willing to risk their lives for a new beginning. Set upon by Indians and enemies, nature and fate, this magnificent caravan will face any challenge to make their own destiny-and change the course of history forever. Their story is the story of America.

    Set in Autumn, 1837, Wagons West: Nebraska! is a gripping story about a group of pioneers led by 'Whip' Holt, crossing the rolling plains towards the Rockies with the hopes of setting up a new town in Oregon country. Thrown in the mix are an escaped black slave, a Native American, spies, rich families and poor families and many other interesting characters to make an interesting and varied mix.They must overcome their differences in order to survive the treachery of the British and Russian agents sent to stop the caravan, outwit the Native American Indians and survive the trip itself.I listened to the audio book read by Phil Gigante. I think he was perfectly chosen for the role, and read believably good British, Russian, Native American, American and African characters.I found the book to be well written, it captured my attention and kept me wanting to read more. I was disappointed when the book ended, simply because I was enjoying it so much I did not want it to end!
