BEYOND THE RIO GILA
by Scott G. Hibbard
An important saga of the American frontier
“As an enthusiastic history buff, I was captivated by the retelling of this epic military expedition and its significance in the unfolding formation of the United States.”
—Susan Brown, Pacific Book Review
This literary historical novel follows the U.S. Army and a Mormon Battalion—with families in tow—on an 1840s perilous trek across the daunting wilderness of the American frontier—the longest march in U.S. infantry history. Part adventure, part coming-of-age, part military history—their story is a unique challenge of human resilience. This cast of engaging characters includes: an alcoholic eastern intellectual, a young man running to and from love, pregnant Mormon women fleeing religious persecution, and stoic Army officers, each with distinctive stories and voices, who share humor, hardship, and intrepid perseverance.
“(This book) is an astonishing, vivid, meticulously researched morality allegory…an elaborate tapestry made authentic as Hibbard nails period dialogue. I’ve not appreciated the fights humans pick in such unforgiving landscapes so thoroughly since Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian.”
—Tom Harpole, author of Regarding Willingness
