A novel of the post-civil war plains
Editeur: Academy Chicago Publishers
"This epic saga begins when a war-weary homesteader returns home with his injured son after the Civil War, to discover that his wife has passed away, his only daughter has gone, and his land is impoverished beyond repair. After his two sons decide to leave and make good on their own, Henry Morton is graced with a change of fortune when he receives an unexpected land grant from the U.S. government. With few resources and no knowledge of what lies ahead, he must tread a treacherous path to claim his land in the Minnesota prairie, thwarting thieves and the harsh elements of nature ... culminating in the seduction and pregnancy of Agnes, a young barmaid whom he must consequently marry... Both find themselves on dangerous journeys in the savage west ... Henry searhes for her, encountering hostile Indians and attempting to clear his name of murder. As the suspenseful action comes full circle, the story explores the good and evil of the human spirit, emphasizing the power of friendship and love." Long Journey Home, Publisher's Note, Back Cover.
