My favorite, "Voyage to Santa Fe" made me feel the stuggle to get prarie schooners across the land and up to Santa Fe.
Shalako
Also great historical accuracy with some fictional characters for story interest.

This book was truly a great find for myself and my family, this is a wonderfully interesting story of the Old West, the main character in this book is my Great Grandfather, Benjamin Holladay, my parents gave me this book some years ago, and this is the only account of Ben Holladay I can find, my Grandfather took my Dad, when he was only 13 years old out of Rifle, Co. where he was raised and put him to work helping on the freight line, evidently my Grandfather Holladay (Willard Benjamin Holladay) had inherited the freight company (what was left of it) from his father, the last any of us know about my grandfather was that the freight line just kind of died in Sacramento, Ca. and this is where he stayed. They hauled freight to the cowboys on the range and other towns along the way from Rifle, Co. to Sacramento, Ca., my father told me this book was very true according to what his father told him.

Format: Hardcover
Very few Westerns have dealt with the ins and outs of the stagecoach business (this in spite of it being the subject of one of John Ford's most memorable films). Here, Janice Holt Giles gives the reader as detailed a look as one might wish for as her young protagonist, Starr, chooses to become a stage driver. Giles' one weakness here is that she occasionally becomes too carried away by the details, but the book is evened out by her account of Starr's adventures (including his relationship with two very different and very interesting women). Giles is no Zane Grey or Louis L'Amour, but she writes a tale which manages to carry the reader's attention.

Janice Holt Giles's home is a few miles from where I live. I've visit several times and yet had never come across this western novel. She employed meticulous research into the Overland Stage Company, their equipment and routes.
You will follow the route and delve into the lives of the people who lived on the road as this historical novel has few fictional characters. She wrote about real people who played an important role in the settlement of our Western Frontier.
A great read if you enjoy westerns, historical, or light romance.

I already have this book but it was in bad shape. I loved it soooo much I wanted another that was in better shape. This book put me in a stage coach from St. Joe to Denver. I met all the stop overs and learned what they had for dinner. I felt the bumps In the road, and smelled the dust and horse sweat in the air. I think everyone should read this book one time.

I cannot seem to get enough of the Janice Holt Giles series of books covering the early days of the United States. I have my 88 year old Mother reading them as soon as I finish one!
