"Samuel Moore and his daughter Hannah set out for the border country with a party led by George Rogers Clark but left to follow the Kentucky River to Boone's Fort. As the story opens, Hannah is nursing her father, injured when an axe slips and cuts his leg. By the time Tice Fowler, on his way to Logan's Fort, stumbles upon them alone in the wilderness, Samuel is dying from blood poisoning." "When Samuel dies, Tice takes Hannah to the fort, where women are scarce, and Hannah finds herself besieged by suitors. Only with Tice, as silent and downright as herself, does Hannah feel at ease. Finally, she turns to the bashful Tice and asks him to marry her and take her away from the crowded fort." "Together, they stake their claim to land, build a cabin, and start a family. They endure the harsh frontier life, the threat of hungry wolves, a killing blizzard, and Indian raids."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Jan 1 2017.....not commenting on this book, but on another by the same author which is not in the system. "Voyage to Sante Fe" (1962) is a little book found in my basement, and I'm going to read it and pass it on. (Only going to keep very interesting non-fiction and the odd beloved fiction, as I must lighten my bookshelves.) After the first couple of chapters, I think I'm going to like this one. Feels like I'm watching a good ole western!
