Price may vary by retailer. We Wades ain't made to stay down long. If women and whiskey were at a premium in Virginia City, rooms were worth the mother lode and a lot harder to find. Jack rubbed the shadow of a beard on his face and considered his dilemma as he watched the fracas going on along the bog of mud and manure that was Jackson Street. With the sun fading behind the mountains, the gulch seemed to come alive quick like a shaky drunk after downing his first drink of the night.

From the author of the acclaimed frontier novel The Journal of Callie Wade comes a magnificent chronicle of courage, trial, and triumph... Montana Territory, 1864: Jack Wade had nothing to lose when he left the wagon train that carried his sister Callie westward. Heartbroken over losing their sister Rose and wanted by the law, Jack heads to the only place for wild souls like himself: the rough-and-tumble gambling town of Virginia City. What he finds there outshines any prize won at the gaming tables -- he discovers Lillie, the down-to-earth card dealer who could be the love of his life. But just as Jack makes a fresh start, a murderous enemy crosses his path -- an explosive twist of fate that forces Jack to leave Lillie and sends him on the run once again. Out on the trail, wounded and half-starved, Jack is rescued by Raven, a beautiful Blackfoot woman, and with her tribe he finds the peace he seeks. But unseen adventures -- some tragic, some redemptive -- await Jack before he finds a place to call home....Written on the run or by the campfire light, in times of joy and grief, Jack's letters to Callie reveal his unforgettable journey as it unfolds -- and stand as a moving testament to the strength of the human spirit.

I had read some of this author's later writings in this series and wanted to read the previous ones. This was #2 in the series. Even though it was interesting, I did not like the story quite as much as the later ones. Probably just my taste.

Love Frontier stories, especially those based on real people and in a part of the country I am familiar with..

Told partly in the form of letters, this is Jack Wade's painful journey from boy to man.
Jack has lived his life as a nomad since he left the wagon train where his father and sister died, existing from card game to card game. He runs from his emotions and from anything smacking of ties. His only bond is with his sister Callie, the recipient of his letters. He is on the run now because he is in trouble with the law. The man he used to ride with neglected to tell Jack that he was a wanted man, and when the law caught up with them last, Jack was lucky to escape with his life.
When he arrives in Virginia City at the Pair O' Dice, he meets Lillie and doesn't want to run any more. Jack and Lillie fall in love, but they have no time to do much at all about their feelings because trouble has caught up with Jack. He leaves Virginia City, intending to come back when things calm down, but then he is shot. When he comes to, he is in a Blackfoot village. As he heals from his wounds, his heart and soul heal as well. And helping in the healing process is a young Blackfoot widow named Raven....
There is joy and agony still awaiting Jack in this sometimes wrenching, sometimes glorious tale. Jack is not your typical hero--he has to learn lessons along the way, and sometimes he falls flat on his face. The reader suffers along with Jack but is also there for the triumphs and will laugh as well as cry with him.

When baby Rose died on the trek west, Jack Wade could not cope with the loss of his little sibling. Needing to mourn by himself and rethink his values, Jack leaves his family and the wagon train in Utah to head north.
However, a new guilt wracks Jack and he feels despondent that he abandoned his beloved sibling Callie. Still, he knew he could no longer remain with the wagon train because he was one of the prime supporters that persuaded the Wade family to go on the journey in the first place. To ameliorate his depression, Jack begins to write letters to Callie that describe what he has seen, how he feels, the nightmares he suffer over his losses including the women he loves, and his dismal hopes for his future.
LETTERS TO CALLIE: JACK WADE'S STORY is more of a historical journal that tells the adventures and misadventures of the hero. Jack's life is exciting as he becomes a gambler, deals with dangerous enemies, and falls in love. The companion piece to the powerfully descriptive THE JOURNAL OF CALLIE WADE is a stand-alone story that continues to portray the often-harsh life of settlers and pioneers. This is Americana historical fiction at its realistic best. It will dawn on genre fans that Ms. Miller is quite an artist painting the landscape of mid nineteenth century western America.
