Publisher's Summary

They are strangers in a strange land - a band of German immigrants trespassing across the Jensen family spread. Led by a baron fleeing a dark past in Germany and accompanied by a woman beautiful enough to dazzle young Matt, the pilgrims are being pursued by a pack of brutal outlaws hungry for blood, money - or maybe something else…. The Jensens are willing to help the pioneers get to the promised land in Wyoming. But they don’t know the whole story of their newfound friends, or who the outlaws really are. By the time the wagon train reaches Wyoming the truth is ready to explode - in a clash of hard fighting, hard choices, and hard deaths in a violent land…

Very good

We always enjoy the Jensen family books. Smoke, Preacher, and Matt Jensen are always entertaining.

An unusual western story

This story takes the reader from disgust for some of the characters and pity for others to an exciting climax that almost ends. Enjoy!

preacher

the voice of preacher was horrible. made him sound like a cross between Festus and slim Pickens. preacher is supposed to be the most aloof, dangerous and deadly mountain man ever and in the story he sounded like an old Crack pot. disappointed overall.

Another great western

George performance is outstanding as usual. He takes a good story and makes it great. The Jenson series is one of my favorites.
