9780525063230: Bendigo Shafter

At what point does a group of strangers become a community? When young Bendigo Shafter and a ragtag bunch of travelers settle in the rugged Wyoming mountains, they quickly come to depend on a toughness and wisdom many of them never knew they possessed. Led by the beautiful and resourceful widow Ruth Macken, the settlers battle harsh winters, renegade opportunists, and the destructive lure of gold. Through these brutally demanding experiences, young Bendigo is forged into a man. But when he travels to New York to reclaim the love of Ninon, his childhood sweetheart, Bendigo is faced with new challenges. Will hard-edged instincts, honed from years in the mountains, serve him in the big city? Does Ninon’s heart belong to the lights and glamour of the theater? And if his destiny deems it so, will he be willing to leave the community he toiled so long and hard to build?

From the Inside Flap:

They came west inspired by the boldest American  dream. Pioneers whose hands and hearts shaped the  proud destiny of a nation. Seven men and thirteen  women and children--strangers who shed their blood  to build a community out of the Wyoming  wilderness. And towering above them all was Bendigo Shafter,  a giant of a man whose love and courage were the  equal of the mighty land.
