Shepard’s writing style required some getting used to for me because he spends more time than other authors that I am used to describing details. Nevertheless, I have read four of his books over the past couple weeks and have purchased three more.
This book is pretty action-packed and was a quick read. As the story unfolds the and the characters are developed, I found this an intriguing tale that was hard to put down.
Paul Reid is a mountain man, a trail guide, and a tracker who comes upon a wagon trail heading west through the Utah Mountains on the way to California with their strong willed trail boss is leading them.
Paul notices that the Oxen and the travelers are thin and low on supplies and will not likely make it through the mountains alive. He tries to tell Cecil, the trail boss of the dangers of Indians, wilderness, weather, and shortage of food and recommends that they stop at Fort Bridget for the winter.
Cecil offers Paul a share of the gold from his brothers mine in California if Paul will guide them through the mountains and on to California. Paul turns Cecil down when he will not listen to reason and the travelers side with. Cecil because they have already traveled through Kentucky and other territories and have not lost a single traveler.
Paul leaves the wagon train in frustration; however, he returns and accepts the job when he realizes that buy leaving the travelers would all like die on the trail.
Attacked by Utes, a they travelers face certain death by an overwhelming number of Ute Warriors. Paul is familiar with the language and culture of the Utes and bargains with them with the promise of traveling directly through the mountains and leave the Utes hunting ground.
Travelers begin dying as Cecil refuses to let Paul guide them. Travelers begin losing trust in Cecil’s leadership ability and about half of them want to turn back toward Fort Bridget and stay their until Spring. Cecil effectively argues against it and Paul only agrees because leading half of the group back would result in the other half’s likely demise.
Danger continues to mount as the camp loyalty divide, tempers flairs, people are murdered and Paul realizes he must protect the travelers from enemies within.
I enjoyed this tale and recommend it family, friends, and other who enjoy old west and frontier adventure novels..
