Once in town she is now seeing, with her own eyes, the way of the frontier. She meets a kind man who takes her under his wing. Together they find out where she can sign up and pay for a stake in the land. They meet a sweet family who help them in more ways than one.
What happens along the way is up to you to find out. You will read about the glorious sunsets, the beautiful expanse of grasses. You will read about the storms. Most of all, you will read about the people.
This book is filled with the history of our country. Just think how beautiful the plains were before we built.

In the late 1800s, Ellen Watson Averell and James Averall are hanged for crimes they didn't commit in this historical account. Ms. Mead tells this true story through the eyes of a fictional character named Susan Cameron.
The cattlemen in the Sweetwater area of Wyoming will have things their way, no matter what has to be done, including lying, cheating and stealing.
Jean Henry Mead took me on a long journey with these characters, both real and fictional, that I won't soon forget. The injustice these people suffered was heartbreaking.
I highly recommend No Escape: The Sweetwater Tragedy to readers who enjoy history, fiction and wonderful characters. You'll put the book down and remember these events for a long time.
Positives- As stated, well written and almost perfectly edited (I found one silly typo) The sense of menace in this story was palpable and the end result satisfying.
Negatives. One of the reasons I steer clear of romance novels (which this is not but... it skirts the genre) is the formula involved- Heroine finds hero... through a series of mis-adventures heroine begins to trust hero- finally, hero and heroine ride off into the sunset.
This story follows that formula- up to a point. In this case, the heroine is almost obnoxiously determined to stubborn herself into certain doom. To the point I wanted to slap her face. Only the most profoundly patient hero would have put up with this young woman's will full nastiness. Finally, she started to see the light and just how close she came to losing everything- including her life.
Still, it was an entertaining read with the added benefit of fine descriptions of just how wild and corrupt the old west really was.
