The man was John Cardigan; in that lonely, hostile land he was the first pioneer. This is the tale of Cardigan and Cardigan’s son, for in his chosen land the pioneer leader in the gigantic task of hewing a path for civilization was to know the bliss of woman’s love and of parenthood, and the sorrow that comes of the loss of a perfect mate; he was to know the tremendous joy of accomplishment and worldly success after infinite labour; and in the sunset of life he was to know the dull despair of failure and ruin. Because of these things there is a tale to be told, the tale of Cardigan’s son, who, when his sire fell in the fray, took up the fight to save his heritage–a tale of life with its love and hate, its battle, victory, defeat, labour, joy, and sorrow, a tale of that unconquerable spirit of youth which spurred Bryce Cardigan to lead a forlorn hope for the sake not of wealth but of an ideal.
The book is fascinating. Thank Roger for reading it. It took me less than four days to read it because the book is so interesting. Thanks Lily for mentioning this book in her other review.
With only one other review of this book, I was compelled to express how fantastic this book was. With two hours spent on the road every day, I search through this website looking for hidden gems and this is definitely one of them. Action, adventure, romance, mystery . . . there's something for everyone. My only regret is that I can't give it six stars.
I never would have read this story, if it weren't for this site, and that would have been a shame. This is a thoroughly engrossing tale, well worth the time it takes to listen to it. The characters are well-developed, and even the main female character is allowed to have a mind of her own. There is one narrator for the whole story, and he does an excellent job throughout.
