KIRKUS REVIEW

Grim Journey, the gruesome story of the Donner Party, had less success than it deserved, perhaps because of its unrelieved tragedy. Here is another historical novel, on a lighter note, the story of the period when the Mexicans, the Texans, the Americans were still in a state of armed watchfulness, with the United States government planning to attach New Mexico to their standard, if possible in a bloodless victory. Good adventure -- good romance, in the story of the Santa Fe trader, John Chain, and the woman of mystery who rode 900 miles with him to play her part in the settlement. For the Neil Swanson market.
