KIRKUS REVIEW

The prairie schooner crossing of the continent, no pleasure cruise, and the hardening experience it brings to Jonathan Prescott, combine here in a story of western derivation, romantic aptitudes. For Jonathan, following Nancy, a childhood sweetheart, who marries before he catches up to her, arranges a marriage of his own- ""in name only""- to beautiful, capable Clarissa. Jon is made captain of their wagon train, appoints a Mississippi river gambler as his deputy until the latter fires his jealously, sees justice done and comes to realize that such a marriage is not enough for them. Rentals.
