Flint's Gift (Forge HC, 1997) launched the saga of Sam Flint, a frontier journalist whose only weapon is the truth. Now Flint drives a wagon load of printing equipment into Oro Blanco, the site of the richest gold strike in the New Mexico Territory. Here he opens his newest weekly newspaper, the Oro Blanco Nugget.An editor is popular only if he can keep a secret, and Oro Blanco has more than its share. Flint senses there's a big story in town. He can smell the corruption and injustice in the air. But would the big mining bosses let him print the truth before they ran him out of town -- or, worse, ended his story forever?

The second entry in Wheeler's Western triology finds frontier journalist Sam Flint setting up his print shop in Oro Blanco, New Mexico. Narrator Cullen is challenged by the variety of characters that have ended up in this out-of-the-way spot--Irish and Cornish miners, a proper Bostonian lady, a Texas lawman and numerous Hispanics. Cullen handles the accents with aplomb and differentiates genders without strain. Though not a spellbinding story, the details and attitudes of the period are authentically presented. S.C.A.
