Few historical frontier sagas have captured the pioneer spirit as boldly and brilliantly as the acclaimed Wagons West by Dana Fuller Ross. Now readers can rediscover America—in the towering epic novel that started it all…


The year is 1837. The American West is untamed, uncivilized, and largely unclaimed. U.S. President Andrew Jackson, in a race with the British and Russians, sends a wagon train of would-be settlers into the uncharted Oregon territory, led by his close friend, mountain man and veteran Sam Brentwood. Teaming up with trail hand Whip Holt, widow Claudia Humphries, and a colorful group of courageous pioneers, Brentwood sets off from New York, heading westward to Independence, Missouri—the last outpost of civilization before the unknown and treacherous dangers of a new frontier. Along the way they would form unbreakable friendships, fight unforeseen enemies, and face unimaginable and often fatal odds. But in spite of the hardships and heartaches, the tragedies and triumphs, they would risk their lives to follow their dreams—and forge a nation’s destiny. This is their story.

This was a very good book. Dana makes the people in this book come alive and you almost feel as if you were right there in it. This is a must read for people who love western novels. Can't wait to read the rest of the saga as they are published.
