another book in the series.. this was a good book...but did not care for it quite as much as the first two...I hope ms snelling will add to the series and get the family back to wyoming! florida was too depressing...really like my books to end well. best part was when the gal fought to see president lincoln to try to save her brother..who really did not want to be saved from the firing squad....her brother seemed so very ungrateful...that is why I hope the author will write a sequel. enjoyed parts, but feel too much was left hanging. at least, this was a christian book without all the sex that some authors seem to think as necessary to their books. best part was when the wife and killed the bear with just one shot while she was fishing...then the engenuity the women used to get the beat back to the cave while all the men were off doing other things!!
