Recommends it for: those interested in American west
This is another in a long series of books about mountain man Titus Bass. This one near the end of his career takes place in the 1840's. Seems to be well researched and historically accurate. Generally a good read.

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.
