This wasn't as exciting to read as "Ride the Wind" , but it was enjoyable. I am not sure how true to reality this is as Samual Huston is concerned, but it was interesting to read about important people of our American History and see them as the normal people they were. I cried at the end. Read full review


User Review  - copperwire9 - Borders

An exceptionally fine historical novel, one that encompasses beauty, tragedy, hope, fear, and passion, written with great sensitivity. This is a book to read, and then to re-read, and then to read again. Read full review
