Fort Laramie seened like the end of the world to the settlers going West on the Oregon Trail. But it was really only the beginning of a pitched battle among settlers looking for a new life, the ragtag army whose job was to protect them, and the watchful Indian nations who demanded recognition of their territorial rights.

"Fort Laramie seemed like the end of the world to the settlers going West on the Oregon Trail. But it was really only the beginning of a pitched battle among settlers looking for a new life, the ragtag army whose job was to protect them, and the watchful Indian nations who demanded recognition of their territorial rights.
Army surgeon Jason Dobbs was a war hero, wasting his life in Washington when he was assigned to the Wyoming outpost to save his health and keep the settlers alive. Brever Second Lieutenant Jean Benoit was a blue blood Louisiana rogue sent to Fort Laramie as a punishment for his affair with the daughter of a prominent senator. Badger was the Broule warrior whose people's destiny was to confront the U.S. Army. Each man had a story to tell--of the real West, of a time of pain and victory, destruction and birth, shame and glory.
