I have read Elizabeth Lowell's "only" series and loved the narrator so wasn't sure about this one
with a female narrator. But when I got into the book it didn't matter.
I loved the description of the land and a woman's survival skill's among Indians and wild horses.
Like all Elizabeth Lowell's books that I have read
you always have the most handsome and potent man
vs an independent perfectly formed responsive woman.
The story has a little of everything including a
good Indian fight, danger, daring escapes and of course in the end a pledge of enduring love and marriage.

Excellent story, from beginning to end.
Janna has only been able too stay alive after her father's death, by spying on the Renegade Indians, by moving like a ghost throughout the country and erasing all evidence of her movements. She only has one friend, a prospector who had known her father, and the wild mustangs she befriends.
The story begins with Janna spying on a group of drunken Renegades who are making a naked man run their gauntlet, which few men survive. This man not only ran the gauntlet, but with a burst of speed kept running, and although severely wounded he outrun his pursuers. The Indians, believing he cannot get away, will hunt him down after their celebration, but Janna follows him, covers up his trail of blood, and by cutting her arm leaves a false trail for the Indians to follow.
Laural Merlington gave a good performance.
