Wagon trains heading west were forced to defend themselves against Indians, cope with injuries and illness, and struggle to find food. The group of easterners Rock Bannon was scouting for faced another problem. They were being deceived. When he warned them to remain on the Humboldt Trail, Sharon Crockett and the others refused to listen. Mort Harper, a stranger riding a beautiful black mare, had dazzled them with his charm and good looks. The southern route was the best way to go, Harper told them. But best for whom? Bannon wondered. That route led straight to the Salt Lake Desert. The conditions would be brutal. And if Harper wasn't steering them toward those deadly alkali flats, where "were" they headed? And what would happen once they got there?… (mais)

This book, like most L'amour books, falls into the "junk food for the mind" category. It's quick, tasty and fun but has no nutritional value. And like most junk food, I love it! There's nothing like escaping into a simple story of love, hate and heroism. The good guys are good, the bad guys are bad and everyone in between runs for the hills (literally, in this case).

My only problem is the last few sentences. I don't know if they were meant to be funny or serious, but either way they don't fit the character's personality, even if he doesn't know how to talk to women. ( )

Passable but bland. The plot includes a few quirks of [il]logic, while the narrator offhandedly and disparagingly refers to one of the story's villain's as a squinty-eyed 'half-breed'. ( )

Product Description Wagon trains heading west were forced to defend themselves against Indians, cope with injuries and illness, and struggle to find food. The group of easterners Rock Bannon was scouting for faced another problem. They were being deceived. When he warned them to remain on the Humboldt Trail, Sharon Crockett and the others refused to listen. Mort Harper, a stranger riding a beautiful black mare, had dazzled them with his charm and good looks. The southern route was the best way to go, Harper told them. But best for whom? Bannon wondered. That route led straight to the Salt Lake Desert. The conditions would be brutal. And if Harper wasnt steering them toward those deadly alkali flats, where were they headed? And what would happen once they got there? From the Publisher Rock Bannon rode a steel-dust stallion that was as stubborn and leather-tough as she was. Scouting for a wagon train full of high hopes, Rock saved the Eastern-bred settlers from a brutal Indian attack. But they paid him back with scorn when he advised against following a fast-talker neamed Morton Harper. Rock Bannon followed no man, so he left the settlers to their promised milk and honey--until they realized their mistake and had no one else to turn to. That's when Rock showed them what a real man was made of and, with a smoking rifle, fought to put down Harper's outlaw crew and to make peace in the virgin land that he called his home. ( )
