Book Description

July 3 2012 Wagons West Series (Book 3)
WYOMING! 1838. The first wagon train to Oregon country moves slowly across the Great Plains, reaching the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in early autumn. Led by wagon scout “Whip” Holt, the five-hundred-strong community of courageous men, women, and children prepare for the bitter winter ahead. Among them are dreamers and drifters, foreigners and natives, friends and enemies. But it is a pair of strong-willed women who are Whip’s most unexpected allies: the outspoken Cathy van Ayl, widowed and alone at twenty-four, and the beautiful half-Arapaho, half-Cherokee La-ena, who was once Whip’s mistress. Before these brave pioneers lie endless miles of hardship and danger, treachery and death. Beneath their struggle for survival lie hidden rivalries, unspoken secrets, and burning jealousies that threaten to consume them all. But in their hearts beats the dream of a new beginning in a promised land — the unstoppable dream of America itself.

About the Author

From AudioFile

Wyoming!, volume three of the Wagons West Series, is well-suited to the audio format. Except for occasional breathiness, Gary Roan reads the story of the first wagon train pushing through the Rockies clearly and with quick pacing. He successfully uses accents and dialects to depict the multitude of characters. Easily distinguishable are male and female characters--Americans, Russians, English and Native Americans. Western and Romance genre fans will enjoy this tale of the pioneer West. S.G.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"Wyoming" is Book 3 in Dana Fuller Ross' magnificent "Wagons West" series and every bit as exciting and well written as the first two books, "Independence" and "Nebraska." If you are a fan of historical fiction and/or the frontier days in the Wild West, then you will thoroughly enjoy this series of 24 books. (This is a review for the Unabridged version of "Wyoming").
The first wagon train to cross the American continent and forge the Oregon Train reached the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in the autumn of 1938. Over 500 weary pioneers considered themselves lucky if they traveled more than 10 miles per day. They found a safe valley in the Wyoming country where they could spend their second winter together before attempting the last leg of their journey to Oregon Territory. They had survived Indian attacks, floods, sabotage, illness and accidents and now had to build temporary housing and forage, prepare and store food for the bitter cold months ahead. If all went well, they would reach their new home by late summer 1839.
This group of farmers, artisans, professional men, merchants, adventure seekers, and their women and children were led by skilled veteran mountainman Whip Holt, and his blood brother, Cherokee warrior Stalking Horse. They were joined in Independence, Missouri by Lieutenant Colonel Lee Blake, the US Army's leading counterintelligence expert. He had been sent by President Martin Van Buren to help protect the wagon train from the British and Russian saboteurs who were determined to destroy it. Both Russia and Great Britain were vying with the US for possession of the Oregon Territory and all its riches.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this third book of the Wagons West! series, the wagon train must endure a winter in the Rocky Mountains. The vaious trials the party endures, whether it be from newcomers to Indians to foreign agents, is wonderfully done. Also of interest is Whip having to deal with his former indiana lover, La-ena. Also of interest is Delores, who deals ith the spirit world in a believable way. Well Done.

"Wyoming" is Book 3 in Dana Fuller Ross' magnificent "Wagons West" series and every bit as exciting and well written as the first two books, "Independence" and "Nebraska." If you are a fan of historical fiction and/or the frontier days in the Wild West, then you will thoroughly enjoy this series of 24 books. (This is a review for the Unabridged version of "Wyoming").
The first wagon train to cross the American continent and forge the Oregon Train reached the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in the autumn of 1938. Over 500 weary pioneers considered themselves lucky if they traveled more than 10 miles per day. They found a safe valley in the Wyoming country where they could spend their second winter together before attempting the last leg of their journey to Oregon Territory. They had survived Indian attacks, floods, sabotage, illness and accidents and now had to build temporary housing and forage, prepare and store food for the bitter cold months ahead. If all went well, they would reach their new home by late summer 1839.
This group of farmers, artisans, professional men, merchants, adventure seekers, and their women and children were led by skilled veteran mountainman Whip Holt, and his blood brother, Cherokee warrior Stalking Horse. They were joined in Independence, Missouri by Lieutenant Colonel Lee Blake, the US Army's leading counterintelligence expert. He had been sent by President Martin Van Buren to help protect the wagon train from the British and Russian saboteurs who were determined to destroy it. Both Russia and Great Britain were vying with the US for possession of the Oregon Territory and all its riches.
The group had long since accustomed itself to communal living and almost everyone worked easily together for the benefit of all. They had also been joined by La-Ena, a beautiful Indian woman, half-sister of Stalking Horse who Holt had spent several winters with before leading the wagon train. Dolores, a half Mexican, half Indian woman and seer joined them as did Ginny Dobbs, a woman who had been badly hurt by life. Their stories, mingled with those of characters from the earlier books, greatly enrich the novel. An epidemic of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever struck and many died from this dreaded disease, so some characters are lost also.
The author vividly brings history to life in "Wyoming," as in the other books in the series. And the politics behind the settling of the West are fascinating. As one would expect, the novel is chock-full of adventure, hardship, courage, love, loss, tragedy and triumph. Many details have been taken from actual diaries and journals of early pioneers. Once you start this book you won't be able to stop until you have read all 24 novels. The next one is "Oregon," and deals with the last leg of the trip - reaching Oregon, building new lives and the confrontation between three great powers - the United States, Imperial Russia and Great Britain. Very highly recommended!
