Content descriptions

General Note: Originally published: Toronto : Bantam Books, 1983.
Summary, etc.: Toby Holt, son of the legendary wagon-master Whip Holt, courageously accepts a presidential mandate to extend the Northwest Railroad across the hazardous Montana Territory. But Sioux war drums beat a fearsome warning to stay off their land - while the bloodthirsty Hastings gang launch their own wave of terror. At stake are the lives of Holt and his team, as well as his new bride Clarissa and his first love Beth. At risk is the future of America itself; divided by war, driven by ambition, and forged in the blazing steel rails that would bring this great nation together.
