This is a story of faith and hope. A young man, destined to die from an incurable disease, embarks on a journey in a forlorn search for a cure. Along the way, he finds love, friendship and many adventures. Set in the late 1860s, the tale realistically reflects the burgeoning times of the USA, following the recovery after the Civil War. There is loyalty, trust, friendship and companionship. There is also tragedy, enmity, murder, bigotry, racism, piracy and land-grabbing. Throughout, there is the sense of purpose, an intelligent flexibility, a stubbornness to achieve a dream and the determination to overcome the odds. Support comes in the most unexpected ways, demonstrating that cooperation surpasses competition. The result is a lasting legacy. It brings together people of different kinds, races, cultures and upbringing, forging a bond that continues to exist. It is a heartwarming tale in which honesty and justice triumph over villainy.

It is 1865. John Lawson, at 16, is dying from consumption. His only remedy appears to seek an hot, dry climate. He heads on the long journey, from Liverpool, by sea, train, boat and horse, to the American South-West, following the end of the American Civil War. Along the way, he encounters many different peoples, meets several challenges and adventures, but finds his salvation, a dynasty and a legacy that lasts to this day.

    Really good read, which kept me wanting to know more. Strong characters and informative. I shan't watch another cowboy western without thinking of the main character John and the family.
