"Through the rolling grasslands of Kansas runs the Smokey Hill River, a rich source of opportunity for those bold enough to risk the dream-killing territory. For Gabe, mountain man and scout, the river means freedom and a chance to map unexplored territory with the Great Pathfinder, John Charles Fremont. For Lem, an Illinois farm boy in pursuit of gold, it is a cruel foe who robs him of his family and his youth. For Jesse, a young Union Corporal, this is the country that took his father and uncle, and where he must fight warring Indians maddened by the relentless destruction of their ancient civilizarion. Above all, it is a land of blazing sunsets, rippling prairie, and cornflower skies--a place where futures can be forged along the unforgiving banks of a great river called the Smokey Hill."
