"The details paint a word picture so vivid that readers can see the story play out in their minds." Steve Dunkelberger, Tacoma Weekly.
From the Inside Flap
I darted into one of the boarded divisions in the hold of the ship, and pulled the half-dozen planks nailed together as a door in behind me. A few seconds later, I heard a heavy slam as something thudded against it, but it did not open.
Carefully I made my way to the outside wall, the only barrier between me and deep water, leaned on it and listened, but I could not hear much, certainly not enough to tell if we were on our way yet. Then a sudden chugging shook me off the wall as if it were a wild animal.
I sat down abruptly on the floor, and shook to my very bones. The sloshing outside turned to churning, pounding against the hull as if it wanted in, a tenor counterpoint to the bass of the ship.
Over it all, completely out of place, a chorus of "baa"s pitched themselves to be heard by the deaf. Both sound and motion were unmistakable. I was stuck in the hold of a steamship with umpteen crates and a herd of - something. Sheep? Goats?
My back against a crate, my ears full of bleating animals, the ship pounding beneath me, I laughed till I cried. I was on my way to the Klondike.

Speaking of the characters, one of the characters is based on a photographer of the time. It’s his photo that graces the cover of the book. He is integral to the story but he does not overshadow it. This nod to historical accuracy without a dependency on his celebrity is a hard line to walk. I must say that M. M. Justus walks it expertly which demonstrates both her commitment to historical detail and artistic license.
Overall, this was a very enjoyable read which has renewed my interest in this historical period. I look forward to reading more from her and have already downloaded the next novel in the series. If you enjoy tales from the West of adventure, searches for treasure and relationships I suggest that you give this series a try. You will appreciate the intelligence of the author’s mix of history, storytelling and romance.

I have the next book in the series, "Repeating History" in the "to be read" queue on my Kobo.
If you've read "Repeating History," you'll recognize the family name of one of the men in the story, and know that there's been (there will be?) time travel. For most of the novel, we don't see anything relating to this, but --
I'm not going to spoil it. Just take my word that there is a "but" in there somewhere.
