In Uncompahgre, the number one best-selling, multiple award winning, third novel of the Threads West Series, the time nears when the first of the next generation of Threads West characters will be born of the brave men and courageous women of different origins who have come so far and risked all. The men and women of the saga, having reached their initial destination, pre-Denver, Cherry Creek, are each faced with life-altering decisions. Some must decide to pursue or abandon torrid love affairs that have flowered on the dangerous journey from Europe and across America. Their lives shaken by events they could not foresee and convergence with souls they could never image, they begin to build a nation whose essence is in transition. They have neither country nor culture in common but their dreams and survival demand a tension-filled alliance stitched by fate and history. The Oglala Sioux family struggles to cope with the inevitable change casting shadows upon their lands, culture and scared traditions. The elderly slave couple, and the renegade and his young, traumatized captive introduced in Maps of Fate, are bound ever more tightly to the arc of the story - their tragedy and triumph-filed tales weaving into the fabric of a collective destiny, the black-hearted captor unknowingly catapulted by his tortured past into possible redemption. Mormons stream west in the Great Exodus escaping persecution and searching for Zion. Driven north by the Texas Rangers, an outlaw vaquero with royal blood quests for a new sense of self and place.
You will recognize the characters who live in these words.
They are the ancestors of your friends, your neighbors, your co-workers, and your family.
They are you. They are us.
This is not only their story. It is our story.

I feel like, I got ripped off on this book, many times during the book the author repeats many sections of book two. I'm sure this could just be a reminder to people who waited for this book to come out, but I had listened to book 1 twice and book two once, pretty quickly into book three, so the repeating was not necessary. Also I felt at 11 hours of audio, it felt short because of all the repeating.
