this could possibly be the best written book i have ever read! it won the Pulitzer in the early 70's and ambles along telling its story taking its time as a storyteller in the old west would do.
a historian who is confined to a wheelchair decides to write the history of his grandparents who were some of the first people to settle the west. it is about the ups and downs of mining,marriage,family and the time out on the plains.
a must read for those who love historical fiction that is genuine and wonderful
