Review by: Val Hill on April 23, 2011 :
Since I belong to the Richard John Moxey Bee family line and have heard the story of the Walton woman being killed at the Pioneer Day dance ever since I got married to a Monticello woman, I found this book extremely interesting and informative. Reading about people that you know about makes reading history more interesting and brings the story to life, where it is more than just a story. I bought a book for myself and then gave it to my sister. The second one I gave to my Aunt; the third I gave to my other sister. By this time I figured I had better get two so that I would have one left over. Read and enjoy.

This was one of the most interesting and inspiring books about the families that settled the West. Recommend the book for any age over 12 to 100. A fast read and well worth the money. A love story, a mystery, and history. I have bought 3 books , and one e book. I am a librarian and am glad to recommend this book to our patrons.
