Book Description

June 7 2011 Wagons West Series (Book 8)
Virginia City, 1861. As thousands of fortune-seekers descend on the silver-rich boomtown hoping to cash in on the Comstock Lode, a very different cause unites the ranks of courageous soldiers in the coming Civil War — the supreme battle for America’s future. Major General Lee Blake is assigned the treacherous task of transporting silver to the Union troops in Missouri — while enemies plot to sabotage his mission. By his side are some of the bravest men and women Blake has ever known: wagon-master Whip Holt, Holt’s quick-tempered son Toby, sharp-shooting newswoman Suzanne Fulton, and English widow Allison White, who may be forced into espionage. With states seceding one by one, and tensions rising every day, the fate of a nation is riding on their journey. But there are those who will stop at nothing to keep the “silver train” from reaching its destination. And there are those who will sacrifice up everything — even their lives — for the golden promise of America...

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent War of Northern Aggression book Jan. 8 2003
By C. Bedford Crenshaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In the 8th book of the Wagons West series, NEVADA, Whip Holt is called for his last chance in the sun as he leads a wagon train full of silver the Union desperately needs to Missouri, where it then goes via train to New York City. Along the way Confederates try to stop him. This is also our first look at Toby Holt, who would go on as the focal character for the rest of the series.
I like the different personalities among the group, as well as the struggle that the Englishwoman and the courtesan had in choosing what is right. Unfortunately, the Rebel treatment of the blacks that were helping Whip was based more on PC propaganda than historical fact. Also, Ross seems to forget the plot point of Whip feeling his age whenever its convenient.
Still, a pretty good book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nevada Silver Travels North To Fund The Union Cause July 20 2004
By Jana L. Perskie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dana Fuller Ross' panoramic saga of America's great expansion into the western territories is some of the most intelligent, well written historic fiction I have read. "Nevada" is Book 8 in a series of 24 novels which truly bring history to life during one of the United States' most important and fascinating periods. I have become addicted to this series and plan to read all twenty-four books.

The year is 1861. Abraham Lincoln has just been inaugurated as President of the United States. But the Union is breaking apart. States are seceding one by one, and a devastating War is about to begin. The Comstock Lode, the richest lode of silver ever found by prospectors, has been discovered near Virginia City, Nevada. The President has enlisted Major General Lee Blake, to carryout an urgent mission. He must ensure that the overland transport of millions of dollars of silver reaches the Union lines safely.

Lincoln and his generals are worried about financing an expensive war. The British are quietly aiding the Confederacy. Britain has made great strides with the Industrial Revolution. Cotton from the South will assure a continuance of their burgeoning economy. The Nevada silver, and gold from California and Colorado, are desperately needed to pay for munitions, uniforms, weapons and food. Whip Holt, Blake's dear friend and colleague from the days of the Oregon Trail, is called out of retirement, his commission as full Colonel reactivated, to assist Blake in this dangerous assignment.

This is one of my favorite books in the series. It is certainly one of the most exciting. The train bearing the silver bullion is sabotaged by British agents and captured by the Confederates. Both the capture and outcome are absolutely thrilling. Many of the characters from the former novels appear here and they continue to grow and develop, while a new generation, born on the Pacific coast, begins to assume responsibilities as they come of age.

The history, characters, plot and subplots in this novel are some of the best so far. I love history, and while I have read and studied this period in America's development, I have learned so much from reading these eight "Wagons West" books. I plan to continue until I read them all. A wonderful reading experience.
