The Wandering HillLarge Print - 2003
The Wandering Hill is the continuing story of Tasmin Berrybender and her family in the unexplored Wild West of the 1830s at the point in time when men like Jim Bridger and Kit Carson though still alive, are already legends, and the journey of Lewis and Clark is still a living memory when painter George Catlin is at work capturing the Mandan tribes just before they are eliminated by the incursion of the white man and smallpox; and when the clash between the powerful Indian tribes of the Missouri and the encroaching white Americans is about to turn into full-blown tragedy. Amidst all this, the Berrybender family - English, eccentric, wealthy, and fiercely out of place - continues its journey of exploration, although beset by difficulties, tragedies, the desertion of trusted servants, and the increasing hardships of day-to-day surivival in a land where nothing can be taken for granted.
