Before reading this book one almost HAS to read Wanderer of the Wasteland. This is in reality the conclusion of the other book, as it leaves many questions unanswered on the last page. Adam Larey, aka Wansfell the Wanderer, is here and his story is completed by the love of a woman, Ruth Virey. Helping the romance along is Merryvale, Adam's partner for the last four years of his wandering. Returning as well is Adam's brother, Guerd, and Collishaw, a fierce gunfighter and former sheriff from Texas. In Stairs of Sand, he runs a string of gambling halls, and with Guerd plans to steal the water holes along which he has learned the route of the new railroad would take. Ruth lives at Lost Lake,one of the water holes, and is abducted by Collishaw's cohorts, and eventually Adam kills Collishaw; but that does not end all of the complications Adam must face before Ruth can be his wife. Ruth had demons as well from her past which she has to face and conquer and climb. Stairs of Sand is an apt sequel; is more readable, faster paced, more action than Wanderer; a fitting conclusion to Adam Larey's story. You need to read it.
