One hundred fifty years of Roses' Tolivers, Warwicks, and DuMonts! We begin in the antebellum South on Plantation Alley in South Carolina, where Silas Toliver, deprived of his inheritance, joins up with his best friend Jeremy Warwick to plan a wagon train expedition to the "black waxy" promise of a new territory called Texas. 

Slavery, westward expansion, abolition, the Civil War, love, marriage, friendship, tragedy and triumph-are all ingredients and lots more, within this latest story by Leila Meacham.
