Summary

A Pulitzer Prize-winning Author
A New York Times BestsellerIt is 1830, and the Berrybender family, rich, aristocratic, English, and fiercely out of place, is on its way up the Missouri River to see the American West as it begins to open up. Lord and Lady Berrybender have abandoned their palatial home in England to explore the frontier and to broaden the horizons of their children, who include Tasmin, a budding young woman of grit, beauty, and determination, her vivacious and difficult sister, and her brother. As they journey by rough stages up the Missouri River, they meet with all the dangers, difficulties, temptations, and awesome natural scenery of the untamed West, as well as a cast of characters that includes Indians, pioneers, mountain men, and explorers (both historical and imaginary), and with as many adventures. At the very core of the story is Tasmin's fast developing relationship with Jim Snow, frontiersman, ferocious Indian fighter, and part-time preacher (known up and down the Missouri as the Sin Killer). The strong, handsome, silent westerner eventually captures her heart, despite the fact that they are two intensely strong-willed people, from very different backgrounds.
