This is the first in the Wild West Wind series and is set in the early 1900's in north and south Dakota. Cassie is the surviving daughter of Wild West Show performers. She, herself, is a sharp shooter, but unfortunately the show has gone broke. Her "uncle" sold the show and then gives her the wagon, team, and cattle, and tells her that she needs to go to South Dakota to the valley her father always talked about.
She journeys off with the company of an old Indian, a young man (not romance material) and her dog. The journey and everyday occurrences are what drive the story. It is interesting, but long in minor details so unless the how of things is of interest, it will be a slow read.
The ending is abrupt and necessitates book two immediately to continue.
