Summary
Beautiful, determined Tasmin Berrybender, daughter of a wealthy, aristocratic Englishman who has brought his family to America in 1830 on an adventure of exploration in the just-opening West, meets and falls in love with frontiersman Jim Snow, an Indian-fighter and part-time preacher known as "the Sin Killer."

Summary
In the first of four tales of the Berrybender family, it's 1832, and Lord and Lady Berrybender--wealthy Brits incongruously venturing into the Wild West--make their way up the Missouri River. Among those in the sizable entourage are 6 of the 14 Berrybender children, including Tasmin, a gutsy, industrious young woman. Tasmin's independence brings strife, especially when she hooks up with frontiersman Jim Snow, an Indian fighter and wanna-be preacher. They call him the Sin Killer, more for his moralistic exploits than his violent tendencies, but nonetheless he is an enigma to the Berrybenders
