A disappointment. Too long, too wordy, too many Willing Women, and then, an Abrupt Ending! This would have been much better if it had been 1/3 as long & better organized. And I really found it hard to identify with the characters- they seemed rather stereotyped. I've read Much Better novels about the Early West, like 'Dream West', 'Hard Country', etc.
I wish that this had been the first Titus bass novel that I read. Unfortunately, I had previously read Carry the Wind which, although it tells the tale of a middle-aged Titus, includes enough of his early life and history that it spoiled this story of Bass' youth and early life. Knowing what was going to happen, I quit the book after the first few chapters.
An exciting tail of a young man's adventures as he breaks away from his parents and the farming life he loathes. Sometimes I think he gets too much into the character's thought process, but overall, I'd recommend it to anyone who likes early frontier adventures.
Excellent. First book I've read by Terry Johnston and won't be the last!! Book taking place 200 years ago about a young frontier man, this is the first in a series about Titus Bass. Lot of interesting history thrown in with the story.
Terry Johnston and this series are responsible for getting me back into reading again.
This one is a real page turner. It grabs you right from the start. A story well told.

Terry C. Johnston was born January 1, 1947 in Arkansas City, KS.
Nineteen publishers rejected Johnston's first novel, Carry the Wind, before it was printed in 1982. However, this first novel was to gain the honor of receiving the Western Writers of America Medicine Pipe Bearer's Award for best first fiction. Johnston is known for his eye for historical detail, and he is a stickler for accuracy.
