Summary

From the master of the Western comes a novel full of romance and adventure.

Adam Laret - big, young, and headstrong - ran from Ehrenberg to the banks of the Rio Colorado. He was blindly fleeing his scheming, gambling brother and the woman Guerd stole from him. But Adam’s escape wasn’t complete until Guerd, in the company of a sheriff, hunted him down. Then Adam committed the ultimate crime. With the mark of Cain upon him - he traveled into the desert to atone for his sins.

In a vast, harsh world of heat and beauty, of stealthy creatures and gnawing starvation, Adam faced death and madmen, Indians and strangers who lived where life was impossible. But nothing he did - no act of courage, righteousness, or violence - washed Adam clean. Until he met a woman and made a choice: to fight his way back to civilization, the most dangerous place of all.

deep story

the writer exposed some profound truths and moral principles in this story that are lacking today. I feel like he could have ended the story with more of a "happily ever after" ending. overall I loved the story

.

Overly descriptive and analyzing every emotion to the nth degree.
Could have fit this book and it’s sequel in one book
