"When Allerton had first come to the land of the Platte, it had been open country, through which had roved wild buffalo herds and friendly Indians, and which was crossed by only an occasional wagon train on the way to Oregon. But in the span of a year all that had changed. the uneasy East spewed wagons in an unending stream toward California. And Allerton's freighter business had grown until he had six wagons of his own. With the migration, pestilence and terror also hit: cholera struck down some and raiders attacked others. And Allerton was kept so busy that he had no time to pay court to Mary Jensen, who mistook his neglect for indifference and turned to the dashing Fortune Raine." Illustrator: . Quantity Available: 1.
