I had never heard of Stephen Bly but I am REALLY glad I finally found him I love westerns especially one's that have Christian values lots of adventure humor and since of place and time Jerry Sciarrio's narration was superb his definition or interpretation of each character made the book for me I give it 5 stars because it's one I'd readlisten to again I never really mind romance in historic fiction It certainly has its place But I am always refreshed by Stephen Bly's ability to write a novel that is about 95% devoid of romance This 1st book in the Fortunes of the Black Hills saga is a masterful journey of Brazos Fortune patriarch to the Fortune clan He sets out from Texas with one goal in mind to find that ranch under a cross that he's dreamed about dreams he believe are given him from the Lord Adventures and tragedies assault him along the way but Brazos has his closest friends Yapper Jim uiet Jim Big Frank and all the rest to keep him company on his journey not to mention the tenacious Dacey June Fortune who follows him out to Dakota territory even though she's only twelve years oldThe story is delightful the characters are delightful and for the first time ever I actually listened to it on audio book and loved every moment of it Stephen Bly wrote the words for these characters but Jerry Sciarrio brings them to life Like a television series premiere Beneath a Dakota Cross leaves a lot of loose ends unresolved That's not a bad thing though; it's the first book in a hexalogy and it was entertaining nonetheless Those who enjoy old school Westerns such as Gunsmoke or Bonanza will probably enjoy this A great read seems like I know this family Slow start but ended in typical Bly fashion Good read Actual 35 starsrather flat Happy to be moving onto book 2 My first Stephan Bly book Nice details from a genre I rarely read Adventures and morals around every corner It was a good intro to the Fortune family Can't wait to read the next book I really liked this book Western warm adventure fun yet scary are all words I'd use for this bookBrazos is a very nice man who ended up with having everything he owned being taken from him by correct law officials and locals He doesn't try to get even he just leaves with his daughter after having a vision like dream to go out west and establish a ranch for him and his daughterLots and lots of things happen to thwart him or give him strength to keep goingGood stuffRead it A Christian western Not bad but totally predictable Main character talks to himself through out Not as unspoken thoughts but a spoken running monologue of whatever is running through his mind I'lll read of the series if I have nothing else to read
