The second entry in Wheeler's Western triology finds frontier journalist Sam Flint setting up his print shop in Oro Blanco, New Mexico. Narrator Cullen is challenged by the variety of characters that have ended up in this out-of-the-way spot--Irish and Cornish miners, a proper Bostonian lady, a Texas lawman and numerous Hispanics. Cullen handles the accents with aplomb and differentiates genders without strain. Though not a spellbinding story, the details and attitudes of the period are authentically presented.
