In 1874 Utah territory, young teamster Buck McCready becomes wagon boss for the Kavanaugh freight outfit after his mentor, Mason Campbell, is murdered. With the Kavanaugh outfit engaged in a wagon train race that will decide whether Kavanaugh or a competitor lands a lucrative freight-hauling contract, Buck vows to find Campbell's killer. But first he must win the race, a difficult task considering there's a saboteur among his crew and a hired gun out to take him down, plus the possibility that Campbell's killer is after Buck, too.
I enjoyed this book very much. i was able to relate to the story. I sometimes think I was born 100 too late. i would loved to have been able to live the lifestyle of the old west.
After an hour of trying to "endure" until it got better, I gave up. Disappointed. I almost always like the westerns.
