Great book

I wanted to read about Jeremiah Johnson after seeing the movie several times never got around to it until now I enjoyed this book with the humor wisdom and Spritual flavor the writer inspired. Writer was very good at story telling and placing you in the story as if you were there. Will read more thanks for a good read.
