Mary Breydon knew how to get things done. Raised on a Virginia plantation, she learned how to care for livestock, respect her workers, and keep good books. But after her husband is killed, she must make a living running a stagecoach station on the Cherokee Trail. Mary faces challenges that even the men eagerly anticipating her failure would have a difficult time overcoming. After being forced to fire the previous station manager with the aid of a bullwhip, Mary must track down stolen horses, defend against Indians, care for a wayward boy, and protect herself and her daughter from Jason Flandrau, a man determined to become governor of the Colorado Territory but who is also the ruthless war criminal who murdered Mary’s husband.

In January of 2011, Ron Cooper, a member of the Comanche Nation of Oklahoma, began walking the Northern Route of the Cherokee Trail of Tears National Historic Trail as a personal adventure of self-reflection. Much to his surprise, he quickly became an ambassador for education, a catalyst for further conservancy of the Trail, and a symbol of tribal unity and pride. During his journey, Cooper experienced all of the pitfalls expected when hiking a long distance, while also enduring the worst winter in recent memory. Constantly plagued by setbacks and doubt, his determination to finish the quest is an inspiration to anyone who has ever desired to take on unknown challenges and seemingly-impossible goals. Part memoir, part trail guide - with history and philosophy throughout. Cooper's is a fresh new voice in the genre.
