The Saga Continues!
Richard Cracroft (former dean of the BYU English Dept and current editor of the BYU Magazine book review section "Book Nook" calls Sherman Fleek, a "Mormon Michener" (referring to world famous novelist James Michener).

If you were captured by the first volume: Called to War: Dawn of the Mormon Battalion, then you can't wait to get a hold of this book!

War in the Far West is the epic story of war and conquest in California and northern Mexico. American soldiers and Mexican lancers clash in bloody battles for control of California. The long march of the Mormon Battalion ends and its consequence of what war does to people, especially the Barlow family. In California severe trials of leadership and governance arise among the American military factions. Even in the Battalion itself the soldiers try to determine which authority is supreme--religious or military. War and rebellion rage in New Mexico where its new American citizens are caught in the vortex of intrigue and battle. Then wild Missouri volunteers face a severe campaign against Navajos and Mexicans across a forbidding land.

The dramatic story continues with Victoria Barlow and her sons Arthur and York as they struggle to find happiness and peace in amidst the turmoil of war and frontier military service. The Mormon Battalion is discharged and the Barlows journey east over the mountains and deserts but soon the brothers must choose between continued military service or gathering to the new Zion in Utah.
