Critic Reviews

"The sixteenth entry in this consistently popular series finds the English-seaman-turned-mountain-man Barnaby Skye shepherding a group of tubercular youngsters to the Virgin River, where the dry climate is thought to offer a respite for their condition. Accompanying Skye are his two Crow Indian wives and a particularly difficult horse that provides comic relief. Among the hardships the group endures are the weather, hostile Indians, and equally hostile travelers who fear catching TB. Skye and his little band also find themselves in the crosshairs between Mormon militia and U.S. government troops looking to drive the Latter-day Saints from their land....Entertaining fare for both strict western fans and historical-fiction readers. (Booklist)
"The combination of the book and the excellent reading makes it hard to stop listening." (Kliatt)
