About this item

The Adventure and Romance of America, her people, her spirit and the West. This is our story.

Fifth novel of the Threads West An American Saga series--compared by reviewers, authors and readers to Lonesome Dove, Centennial, Louis L'Amour (with steam) and called by some the “Gone with the Wind of the West” and “rings true and poignant, as authentic and moving as Dances with Wolves”. The multiple #1 bestselling series—winner of fifteen National Awards, (including Best Historical Fiction, Best Romance, and Best Western)—bursts with the adventure, romance and promise of historical America and the West.

This epic saga begins in the spring of 1854. America draws individuals and families from all corners of the earth with the promise of land, freedom, self-determination and economic opportunity. Immigrants exchange the lives they know for the hope and romance of a country embarked on the course of greatness. The nation is on the cusp of her great westward expansion, reluctantly on the threshold of becoming a world power.

One thousand miles to the west of booming St Louis—gateway to the frontier—is the lawless, untamed spine of the continent, the Rocky Mountains. The power of their jagged peaks, rugged territories and vast resources beckon the souls of a few adventurous men and women, the vanguard of five generations of diverse and vibrant Threads West characters, love and struggle in the beautiful but unforgiving landscape of the West.

The brave, passion-filled personalities of Threads West; Book Two, Maps of Fate; Book Three, Uncompahgre; and Book Four, Moccasin Tracks, struggle with internal and external conflicts as they journey across and strive to establish life in this unknown wilderness.  They are swept unknowingly into the tumultuous vortex of momentous changes shaping the United States and the West pre-Civil War. Secret maps, hidden ambitions, and magnetic attractions inherent in lives forged by the conflicting fires of love and loss, hope and sorrow, life and death, shape their futures and the destinies of their lineage.  The dark stain on the pages of American History known as the “Indian Solution” begins to manifest, threatening bonds between uncommon cultures years earlier.  Love, passions, and jealousy erupt, threatening the fabric of unity between friends formed and lovers.

In Book Five, Footsteps, the offspring of the vanguard of Threads West characters are coming of age under the protective wing of the savvy, courage and fast guns of their Uncompahgre Valley rancher parents. Farms and villages flourish under steady Mormon hands in the Cache Valley, but bitter enmity flares between those settlers and the Northern Ute.  America is in transition, the lives of these brave men and independent women and the maturing first Ameri
