Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0843948590, Mass Market Paperback)

Alex O'Keefe left Texas with Scotsman John McLeod, who had fired him up with dreams of empire in New Mexico Territory. Surrendering to her husband's enthusiasm, Joanna O'Keefe sells out the family holdings and sets out to join him. But Joanna's arrival is awkward: Alex O'Keefe has been murdered, and although there is no room for her, Joanna has nowhere else to go. Then the dream empire is threatened when the railroad raises cattle fees higher than the sales would bring. It's Joanna who proposes that they drive the cattle overland into the California markets, and Joanna who accompanies the drive . . .

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:10:06 -0400)

When Joanna O'Keefe's husband is murdered by unknown assailants, her dream of building a cattle empire is not dampened. Banking her future on an overland drive into SanDiego, the most direct route crosses the Colorado River and the Mojave Desert.
