Lancaster's plans for having a well-deserved drink are thwarted by the lynching of an innocent man, and after saving the man's life, he finds himself on the way to California, protecting a wagon train filled with women and children. Original.
  • Lancaster stops in Council Bluffs, Iowa for a nice cold beer. Walking into the Black Horse Saloon he found the place in a shambles. Turns out there's been a trial that day, that explains the circus atmosphere in town as everyone's excited about the hanging that's about to take place. As Lancaster is drinking his beer a man stands up announcing he's the hangman. He is Sam Quitman & the way he's wearing his gun tells Lancaster he's without a doubt a gunman. When Lancaster inquires where the sheriff is he's told that Sheriff Ben Lockwood is the guest of honor at the necktie party they are about to have.
    Well, dern it! All he wanted was a cold beer & now he's faced with stopping the crazy town from hanging their sheriff. How lucky can a fellow get? Unfortunately, in stopping the hanging Lancaster is forced to kill Quitman.
    Also, in the gunfire an innocent bystander is shot. Turns out he is a man named Briston who has came to town to gather supplies for five wagons he is leading to California consisting of four women & about twenty orphans & Briston's dying request is that Lancaster take over the chore & get them to California.
    With the help of ex-Sheriff Ben Lockwood the journey begins. Both Lancaster & Lockwood are concerned that perhaps the five brothers of Sam Quitman might be trailing them. Not only do they have to keep watch on their back trail but there are many obstacles ahead that will require both men to go to the limit for the safe journey of their charges.
    Really great read that pulls the reader right into the story from the very beginning.

  • The idea of traveling west in a wagon train transporting a group of orphans fascinated me so I tried this book. Several strong females combine with a strong-minded trail master as they escort the children across the wild lands of the American West. Both the wagon train leader and one of the women are strong leaders, and the children seem to be innocent and very trusting.

  • RJR has penned a western about 5 women who are escorting 22 children, orphans, from Philadelphia to northern California. Their wagon master is killed and they ask an ex gunman and ex sheriff to help get the children to California. They make it to Cheyenne and the ex sheriff takes over as the ex gunman goes his own way. This is an excellent read for the genre.....ER

  • It was a very good story. Three ladies were taking orphans out west for new home. I don't want to give to much away, but a former bounty hunter and ex-lawman helped them. I didn't like the ending. Not a cliff hanger but you can make up your own mind how you want it to end.

  • For anyone that likes Westerns, read this. Although you might need a hankie
    at the end especially for little Aaron.
    Is there a sequel to this continuing Lancaster's journey?

  • I read quite a bit so how overlooked Robert Randisi I don't know. But I'm glad I found him. His characters are gritty and a little rough around the edges but that's what makes them interesting. I would like to see his Lancaster character warm up a bit. However I have to remind myself that the HEA is because the hero is still alive. Not because he found a soul mate or even a best friend.

  • A Very good story! Sad in some places suspenseful in others , and all of it very touching. It just made a person want to cry, the way Aaron was with Lancaster. Hopefully all the kids found loving homes when they got to California. I highly recommend this book!

  • A very good story about two Cowboys helping women and children survive on a wagon train going from east to west. Lots of adventures!!
