“Wagons West…” by Dana Fuller Ross

February 23, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

The westward flow of American exodus having been staunched by the pounding pacific long ago, we can be thankful that the journeys of our brave ancestors are entombed for our re-living in books and films. Among this vast array of collected tales, I have been most fortunate to stumble across what I can only refer to as the best series I have ever read.

The “Wagon’s West…” series by Dana Fuller Ross first entered the roundup of historical fiction in 1979 with the release of the first book, …”IDEPENDENCE!”  It’s great to see such a diverse group of people forging friendships and making allies from foes as the wagon train begins its first leg of a long journey west. The character development is very strong in this particular book, which is the reason why the reader absolutely cannot wait to pick up book 2; NEBRASKA!” Who marry’s who? Who beats the odds against nature, natives, and nay-sayers?  The people who undertook the westward roll were braver than anyone I’ve ever encountered, and this series portrays that sense of courage and dedication to a ‘T’.

This series is action-packed to beat all get out. Sometimes, while reading this series, I just couldn’t turn the pages fast enough and I found myself  wishing that I could move my eyes as fast as I could move my fingers. Five stars, five stars, five stars. Buy it, read it, and read it again. You can’t do much better in re-living the westward experience than within the pages of the “Wagons West” series.
