I also didn't like this audio book. Granted it did what I needed it to do, provide as a relief during my endless audio books on how to get more money, but that's all it did good.

It sounded great, like an old western but telled from the girls perspective. Well Apparently that means following around some lady who wants every man to want to marry her, but if they try to, she acts like she's

IT did start out interesting with perspectives on the Indians that didn't sound like the were written in the 19th century, but hey by the end they came to prove that treating Indians like people was foolish nonsense of liberal women, not the truth.

Certainly won't be reading the rest of this ( )

Zane's books are very repetitive, heroines are all plucky girls who adapt to the West and the heroes are all solitary nature lovers that are finally tamed by the girl. The descriptions of nature are tedious at times. Everything turns out just fine in the end without much tension involved in getting to there. ( )

A first edition thus, with these pecularities: from page 205 to 241 the in-between pages are missing, buty not to worry -- after page 258, a section begins again with pages 225 to 356 inclusive. Pages 205 to 224 seem to be loist forever on this edition. The wonderful thing is this volume was issued this way! There is no showing of any re-binding or removal of the spine. ( )

Grey's first novel involves his own family in the early frontier along the Ohio river. This historical fiction includes tales of Lewis Wetzel and several Zanes. The center of the work is Betty Zane, whose run for powder saved the fort during a siege by Indians and the British during the Revolutionary War. ( )
