The Man From Shenandoah by Marsha Ward

The Man From Shenandoah by Marsha Ward

The Civil War has just finished and Carl Owen has just returned home to find his family farm destroyed. His family decide to leave Virginia to seek his mom's brother in the gold fields of Colorado Territory. Carl's father decides to start fresh with starting a cattle ranch and with other families in the community going with them, the journey is bearable. Carl encounters and battles Berto Acosta, a murderous outlaw leader, along with his gang, battles a prairie fire, blizzards, a trackless waterless desert, and his own brother, who has been promised Ellen as his bride by both fathers, while Carl is set to marry Ida. This western novel has everything and the action is non-stop. There are two more in this series and I've just started the second Vol., Ride To Raton, with Trail of Storms the last one. I highly recommend this excellent novel. Kudos to Marsha.

Marsha is a wonderful author. I love to tell how I gave this book to my husband as a gift and he was sure that a woman couldn't write a good western. But by the time he had finished reading it, he had to admit that at least Marsha Ward wrote great westerns!! Glad to see you review her books, Teri.
