Sinopse

Lovers find each other on the Oregon Trail… Following a hasty marriage of convenience, Gertie joined her husband on the life changing journey to the Oregon Territory. Like the thousands of other pioneers, the newlyweds sought to capture a slice of fertile land in the Willamette Valley for themselves. The promise of a homestead in the temperate climate along the west coast proved to be irresistible. However, the trip was not without peril, and many failed to arrive. As the mind-numbing drudgery of the Trail became the new bride’s daily routine, life dealt Gertie a harsh blow and launched her into a struggle to survive. After rebelling against his father, Edgar headed west from Pittsburgh. Although trained as a lawyer, he began his travels working as a crewmember aboard riverboats. When he learned of the gold discovered in California, he joined the rush to the west coast. Working as a scout for a wagon train on the Oregon Trail, Edgar found himself responsible for three widows. The future of these women was uncertain as only men could claim the free Oregon land. A romantic adventure story, this book is spiced with Indians, shoot-outs, murder, and hangings — along with the dull daily routine of survival on empty American Frontier.
