Description
"Lucy Scott Mitchum wasn't sure how she felt about California. But that's where she was going. Ever since they'd left the security of their life back east...ever since they'd packed all their belongings, taken their little family, and started on the long trail west, Lucy and her husband, Noah, had talked of nothing but their future..." "California was paradise, and unlimited opportunity, and untold riches. Noah was going to the goldfields and he would strike it rich - nothing less than a fortune would do." "But before the promise of California, there would be endless miles of prairie and mountain, swollen rivers and Indians, disease and madness. Lucy and her little family would have to survive a two-thousand-mile ordeal before they got there. It would be harder than she could ever imagine....And it was going to be war. War against the elements, against hostile natives, and against the will of the land itself. A war to be fought every minute of every day, against herself and her fears."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
