Read in September, 2011

I found this book at a house up along the Madison River in Montana. Nothing more than the intriguing title pull my eye to it and I have to say I was ready for some historical tale.

Crow Killer is the story of John Johnston who became infamous among frontiersmen for taking out 100s of Crow Indians (and anyone else who challenged him) to exact revenge for the killing of his Flathead wife. Many recollections by several people who crossed paths with or trapped with Johnson, are pieced together to wend the tale of a man of few words who was recognized as the Mountain Man among mountain men. Truly a man who deserves a place among the greatest American frontier legends.
