Publisher's Summary

Charting the trail across the Great Plains from New York City to the Mexican Territory of California, a headstrong couple embarks on a new life in this classic work of historical fiction as unforgiving, moving, and unpredictable as the frontier.

A recent finishing school graduate, 18-year-old Garnet Cameron is desperate for direction. Too driven for the restrictive manners of the upper class, Garnet is naturally drawn to Oliver Hale, a frontier trader from the West. Unlike the men to whom she's accustomed, Oliver treats Garnet as an equal and respects her independence. His tales of adventure on the plains thrill her. And his proposal of marriage is accepted. Garnet eagerly grabs hold of the promise and prospects of an exciting future, only to discover how ill-prepared she is for the punishing landscape of the Jubilee Trail and the even harsher realities of human nature.

Made into a feature film, Jubilee Trail is a classic novel of a woman in the old West, beloved not only for the rebelliousness and resilience of its heroine, but for its authenticity, its grand sweep, its unsparing intimacy, and its honest portrayal of the survivors and victims - and victors and villains - of a defiant American wilderness.

Not worth the time

By far the most saccharine, superficial "historical fiction" I've ever encountered. Couldn't make it past chapter 4.

great story/poor character voices

Great story from my past. I tried to enjoy listening but gave up and read the book. The narrator made one of the 2 lead females sound too much like a man....it really ruined the whole listening experience. very disappointed....

Favorite Author

I have actually read this book at least 50 times. No exaggeration! My grandfather gave me a copy of this book when I was in high school! I was enthralled with it and didn’t want it to end so I started it over when I got to the end! And I repeatedly did this! I was so excited when I found it on Audible I had to listen to it! It was even better than I remembered! I recommend this book to anyone one!
