This is a great book of historical fiction set in 1800’s US – from Mississippi to Montana – a family saga about a Mississippi steam boat captain who leaves the river during the Civil War to become a rancher/ prospector in South Dakota/Montana/Nebraska, and his twin sons who grow up to live in the American “wild West”. Great quirky characters and evocative description of the Great Plains landscape and history. (submitted by GA)

Jack Todd can tell a story. He grabs you in the first couple of pages and I don't want to put it down until I know the whole story. His dialogue is real; his characters are alive; the landscape is another character. I hope he keeps writing so I can keep reading him.
