Publisher's Summary

Autumn, 1837. Driving onward - against the worst of man and nature - a legendary caravan of men, women and children forge a new link in the wilderness trek from Independence, Missouri to the "Promised Land" beyond the Rockies. They are pioneering Americans from North and South - side-by-side with immigrants, a black man and an Indian - waging a fierce daily battle for bare survival on an uncompromising journey to their private destinies and the fulfillment of America's greatest dream.

Nebraska! This is the story of fearless devotion to a hard-won ideal, of betrayal from within and sabotage that reaches as far as Britain's and Imperial Russia's shores, of the story of "Whip" Holt, the ruggedly quiet leader of this leg of the perilous migration; and of Cathy Van Ayl, who leaves her family behind in Missouri to continue on with Whip Holt's train - and perhaps, to win his heart.

Still great

I read this series years ago in high school and the fact that I get to listen to it on audio now that I’m older is a real treat

Love the narration

Any additional comments?

The stories are pretty good but the narration is what hits this series out of the park for me.

Fantastic series

I have loved the first 2 books, I can't wait to start the third. The characters have a lot of depth, the story is very interesting, and the narrator is fantastic.

And the trek continues

loved it, moving on to book 3
however it is strange how the bad guys are able to negotiate with the Indians without being tortured or killed on sight.

Just a Fun Listen!

If you could sum up Nebraska! in three words, what would they be?

I listen mostly at night as at times I have a sleep problem. I like this Dana Ross series as they are just plain interesting & fun to learn about how people did things back in the pre Civil War days. No super markets, shot your own meat, gather water (not in plastic) & so on. The story line is very interesting with plenty of gun fights. A wholesome listen.

What did you like best about this story?

How the women in the wagon train began to blossom & harden up to the circumstances, including learning to shoot.

What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

Phil has a way of modulating his voice to fit many situations. He is very good. I don't keep audio books

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No crying, just full attention. A good read.

Any additional comments?

Folks with an interest in early America & the settling of the west will enjoy this series. Plus, the price is right!

Good story & great performance

The story is great and the narrator does a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. I hope they'll continue to record the rest of the books in the series.

Pioneers going West

If you like stories about the pioneers traveling West, these are pretty good books to read. I really could do without the history talk, but other than those (and they are few), it is a good read. I'm looking forward to book Number Three!
