The year is 1837. The American West is untamed, uncivilized, and largely unclaimed. U.S. President Andrew Jackson, in a race with the British and Russians, sends a wagon train of would-be settlers into the uncharted Oregon territory, led by his close friend, mountain man and veteran Sam Brentwood. Teaming up with trail hand Whip Holt, widow Claudia Humphries, and a colorful group of courageous pioneers, Brentwood sets off from New York, heading westward to Independence, Missouri—the last outpost of civilization before the unknown and treacherous dangers of a new frontier. Along the way they will form unbreakable friendships, fight unforeseen enemies, and face unimaginable and often fatal odds. But in spite of the hardships and heartaches, the tragedies and triumphs, they will risk their lives to follow their dreams—and forge a nation’s destiny. This is their story.

Dana Fuller Ross was the pseudonym of Noel Bertram Gerson. Gerson, a prolific writer, wrote numerous works under many pseudonyms including the White Indian novels, which he wrote as Donald Clayton Porter.From AudioFile:
Independence! is a 70mm wide-screen sort of novel with a cast of thousands and lots of familiar faces in the leading roles. It's all a little larger than life and much neater, but a good yarn. Reader Tom Morgan plunges into this epic with assurance in a light, pleasant voice well-suited to prolonged listening. His character voices are lightly drawn but consistent enough for clarity, and he commands a wide range of regional accents. He makes little effort to differentiate female voices as such, but that's a minor quibble. Neat packaging and production wrap up an attractive selection for light listening. J.N.
