An epic tale of strength, compassion, and adventure on the western frontier.
Orphaned at fourteen, Hector “Heck” Martin heads west, determined to see the far country and make a man of himself.
Along the way, he falls in love with bold and beautiful Hope Mullen. But Heck is too young and poor to marry, so he heads west again.
During a three-year journey, Heck crosses thousands of miles, becomes a bareknuckle boxer, a mountain man, and an Indian fighter, and meets the likes of Kit Carson and Jim Bridger as he explores the gorgeous and deadly frontier.
Then, stopping by Fort Bent, he receives a letter that changes everything. Hope’s family is daring the Oregon Trail.
Heck vows to intercept and help them. But the Mullens face serious troubles—both outside and within the wagon train.
Can Heck rescue Hope before it’s too late?
Heck’s Journey is a classic Western with a touch of romance. It’s perfect for fans of C.J. Petit and R.O. Lane.
