No less than the Journey: Wesley Curnow, a young Cornish miner, arrives in the United States to seek an uncle who is working on the mines in Missouri. Taking passage on a boat from New York, bound for New Orleans, he meets up with a charismatic U.S. marshal who is en route to the western territories to bring law to the area.After a gun fight with pirates on the Mississippi River and an encounter with an attractive half-Mexican croupier, Wes parts company with his companions only to find his uncle has been forced to move away. Wes faces a serious altercation with German miners, meets and old 'Mountainman' who teaches him proficiency with a revolver, and then faces a journey overland through inhospitable country. But can he survive the journey?

I just hope they keep putting out the printed books too.

Charles printed books are here for a long long time but this is an exciting development.

I've got the hardback print version of this book in my TBR pile. Hale also published a paperback version (a rare event). EV is a great storyteller.

hi am alexcampbell

In a way this is the Amazon Kindle’s Achiles heel, as the Kindle only supports Kindle (Azw) and non DRM Mobi/Pdf files natively. You can also send .text, audible, .doc, html,and image files through your amazon email which loads them onto your device too.What this means is that you will be restricted to buying ebooks from the Kindle store only (you won’t be able to use Waters tones, Wordsmith, Diesel Ebooks, Kobo etc).
