Few historical frontier sagas have captured the pioneer spirit as boldly and brilliantly as the acclaimed Wagons West series by Dana Fuller Ross. Now readers can rediscover America--in the sprawling epic journey that forged a nation's destiny. . .


From coast to coast, the railroads offered limitless opportunities to an ever growing number of workers and dreamers. In the parched Utah territory, brawny laborers, engineers and immigrants blasted tunnels through solid rock and laid countless miles of shining steel rails to link cities to frontiers, and frontiers to the future. But some would stop at nothing to halt the iron wheels of progress: rampaging tribes with rifles blazing, unscrupulous ranchers fueled by greed, and most dangerous of all--the unforgiving land itself. A new destiny awaits those brave enough to claim it. Former wagon master Whip Holt must keep the peace between the Chinese and Irish working on the rails. Clarissa Holt learns that her first husband, long thought dead, is still alive. And Robert Martin must accept a fate as heartbreaking as it is inevitable. . .

This is the story of the transcontinental railroad, an epic struggle of hope and glory that would change the course of America forever.
