If you want excitement and page-turning enjoyment... READ ON! - Al Lacy, Award-winning Author and Evangelist

From the Author

It was unprecedented and therefore a complete surprise to me when the judges of the prestigious Christy Award gave this book such lofty considerations as to make it not only the first ever self-published book to be named one of three finalists for the award, but it then went on to win.

There is no doubt in my mind that the Lord had His hand in the writing of this work and I am eternally grateful for that. It also makes it as much His work as it is mine.

We offer it here for your enjoyment.

As an author myself, I enjoyed this western quite a bit. It was the story of a wagon train headed into the west where people wanted to start a new life. I really enjoyed the way the author wound the love of the two main characters into the theme of the story. Of course, there was another couple who fell in love while on the wagon train going west. You had some curious 'meanies' on the trip. Of course, during the hardships of the trail, their 'mean' streak became friendship. When it came time for the Indians to attack the wagon train and do their dastardly deeds, he was able to lead you into it in some small subtle ways that started keeping you on the edge of your seat. My greatest love of the book was that he was able to portray to love of Jesus Christ as a lifestyle and not just a 'Sunday School' thing. No dirty words, no lewd story lines. I absolutely loved it. It is well worth the read. I would heartily recommend it to all age groups.

This book was very well written. It has just the right amount of adventure, romance and a very strong Christian foundation throughout the entire book. I couldn't wait to start the second book in the series!

This was a good, fast moving book. This was a book that starts and brings in God and how he works in our lives. It has a couple of twist that you won't see coming. Enjoy the book. Hope there are more in the series.

Good read, but i did wonder where they did their laundry, did they ever go to the bathroom, take a bath, did the baby never have colic and scream all night or half the day-- it seemed he only slept sweetly while the adults did their things? What did they cook over those fires? More about these details would have made it more interesting for me.

I tried very hard, twice, to get to the end of this book and finally gave up. The only way I could describe it is the author tried too hard to make it a western. I had to suspend belief too many times during their journey. The characters were not that great and I didn't see many historical aspects to it. Where are the descriptions, the 'feel' that you're on a wagon train.

I enjoyed this book immensely. I liked it because of the adventure but also because of it's Christian input. It is refreshing to read books that are not filled with profanity, cruelty, violence, and sinfulness. I would recommend this book to all readers. I am looking forward to reading Book 2.

Excellent start to the Arkansas Valley series! Featuring wholesome characters exhibiting Godly values, Rogers introduces readers to high adventure on the western frontier. This book presents the arduous journey of frontiersmen who learn to rely upon their innate survival instincts, the support of fellow travelers, and their Christian faith as they venture out across the wild west in an effort to establish homesteads deep in Indian Country. This book has a great plot featuring the struggles encountered among fellow travelers, unpredictable weather, natural hindrances, and violent natives populations; this book very effectively transports readers to the 1800s and easily conveys the adventurous spirit of the West. Rogers maintained dialogue appropriate and consistent for the time period, without over exaggeration to the point of unintelligible gibberish -- an aspect I personally appreciated very much. Great read, and I look forward to book 2.

it is a very good book. It has a lot of fun and true facts in it. It is a good story plot. And with hardly any bad words in it makes it easy to use and enjoy. It is also very captivating it will hold your interest at the same time it fills you with the wonder of what is going to happen next. It does have a little of everything in it that you would expect from a good western. Read it I think you will enjoy it.
