Über den Autor
Glendon Swarthout wrote sixteen novels, many of which were bestsellers and were made into films, among them Seventh Cavalry, They Came to Cordura, Where the Boys Are, Bless the Beasts & Children, and A Christmas to Remember. He was twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in fiction and won a number of other awards, including the Western Writers Award for Lifetime Achievement.
A devastating, humane story of early pioneers to America's West in the 1850s. It celebrates the ones we hear nothing of, the brave women whose hearts and minds were broken by that life of bitter hardship. '...Swarthout puts you there, in time and place. I love the way he writes' "Elmore Leonard"
