JOURNEY TO TRACER’S POINT is a historical family saga during the 1849 gold rush. The story typifies how people went west in search of their dreams of gold, many dying on the way. It tells of the loneliness and dangers involved of traveling west in a covered wagon during the mid 1800’s. The old adage that if you worked hard you’d have a chance for success.


“JOURNEY TO TRACER’S POINT takes the reader on one long adventure, from the hills of Virginia to the gold fields of California. For anyone who enjoys American history, Ramsey has done considerable research. A good read!”- Gail L. Jenner, author of ACROSS THE SWEET GRASS HILLS, Winner of the 2002 WILLA Literary Award, Women Writing the West

“I don’t know which I liked best- the engaging cast of characters that Ramsey has created or the exciting adventures she sends them on. JOURNEY TO TRACER’S POINT is filled with the kind of details that make the story of traveling acorss America in a covered wagon both real and exciting. I didn’t want to see the story end and have to leave the characters behind.”- Margaret Coal, author of BLOOD MEMORY, Berkley

“Ramsey has a descriptive writing style that is very visual. Her debut novel is a bittersweet journey of the heart, an authentic depiction of the tribultions of a family as the traverse to California during the gold rush.”- Cynthis Leal Massey, author of THE CABALLEROS OF RUBY, TEXAS, Farris Literary Agency
