A powerful epic about the Texas frontier just before the Civil War. It is a realistic, finely textured novel of love and death in the tide of American history. Ross brings alive the time, the land, and the people: a couple who leave North Carolina for the West, the runaway slave who joins them, the beautiful Mexican who comes between them, and the Comanche warrior who could destroy them.
