A story about the two Delaney families when California was a new state in the Union. A strange love story, the struggles of their children for their own happiness, the restless vigor and roughness of time when a man often traded his wife for a horse. The floods and palgues that challenged them. A dramatic novel. Book has some yellowing to pages, but it is VG. DJ has a few tears and nicks.
