Abstract:

In an untamed land, a young woman will meet a man who wins her heart. For twenty-two years, Elizabeth's father has battled the Pennsylvania soil. Each year, his farm gives up a little less, until finally he is forced to admit that it has beaten him. With the last of his savings, he buys a plot in far-off Texas, where settlers have just begun to flood the endless plains. Elizabeth's mother and big sister are aghast at the move, which will take them even farther from the urban society of the East, but Elizabeth cannot wait to set foot in Texas, where she will discover adventure, beauty, and the burning passion of true love. Joining them on the trail is True Paxton, a son of Charleston who has grown tired of his easy life racing horses and managing the family shipping business. With his brothers, True sets out for the plains, to fight the battles that will make him a man—and change his country forever.
