Heroes of Glorieta Pass is a compelling, unforgettable story of love, loyalty, intrigue, and war, set in America's western territories during the Civil War. The Confederacy attempted to split California from the Union, controlling access to the West by blocking commerce and immigration along the Platte River Trails, and gaining access to the mineral wealth of the Southwest. These efforts affected the lives of many, including Latter-day Saints, testing their vision of the future and their loyalty to the Constitution and to their war-torn nation.
This story of those people and times concludes with a critical--and thrilling--battle fought between Union and Confederate forces high in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico, along the Santa Fe Trail at Glorieta Pass. This page turner presents a fascinating new perspective on the Civil War.
The book that I have stopped at page 346 without any ending, no way to end a story. Not even a period after the last word. Poorly done.I would rate the story very good, but without and ending, i rate it poorly.
The story line gets bogged down with details of battles and minutiae not needed to carry the story, while leaving huge holes in the necessary part of the story. Suddenly, 2 people who have previously been at odds are married with no attention to how that change may have taken place. An unsatisfying read.
I do not recommend this book as it contains profanity and a descriptive love scene between Clay and Consuela. Readers beware.
