Another well done Johnstone book. Although written in a different style to a certain extent, it is still good. In this book, Smoke is interviewed about both John (Liver Eater) Jackson and himself by a college Professor. Still a good book.

Awful, just awful. Somebody lied to this author asking for an "Indiana Jones" tilt. This author can't do dialogue and it was just ruined. The first two chapters were stilted sentences. ugh

A Novel told from the point of view of an aged Smoke Jensen(1928) being interviewed for a book about some of the old west figures stil famous. That's the framing for a series of stories involving Smoke, his mentor Preacher, and Smoke's own protege, Matt Jensen. The main part of the story involves Smoke taking on an Easterner that came west to be a mountain man and trap. Smoke teaches him how to survive and prosper in the Montana territory.

John Jackson is based on the real life mountain man John

I HATE it when a new story f's up the original story. I wish J. A. Johnstone had read his father's original stories. Maybe then he could keep the story straight and not put extraneous people and events in that were not in the original. And it wasn't even really about Smoke Jensen. How was this a Mountain Man novel?

This was my first time reading a western. It's simple yet very entertaining. Also, I am a big fan of the movie 'Jeremiah Johnson' (which was based off of John Jackson) so it was interesting to see part of that story told in a different way.

Couldn't finish this book and I like Westerns. But this one got clogged down with the story telling and that wasn't well written. This author is a good one so I must have missed something.
