This book is incredible Well written, great characters, great scenery, a great story through and through If you enjoy stories about mountain men, you will love this book I would read about these characters in a heart beat if there were books in this series This is my first time reading this author, once I finished this book I immediately bought two .The story follows a mountain man with high ambitions to move above his station in life Eli Cutler is tasked to lead an expedition into the wilderness to trap beaver and find out the truth behind a suspicious massacre With the help of retired soldier and company man McClure, they recruit a rag tag group of old timers and greenhorns Setting out from Taos late in the season, the group runs into many obstacles and foreboding characters, some versus the company, some from the past of the men If the group doesn t learn to band together, it is only a matter of time before the weather, natives or the past comes calling. Story was hard to follow with so many characters and situations Unbelievable situations with constant battles with indians, traitors and survival from impossible situations Very hard to continue with readinng to the finish. An epic story KUDOS Mr Zimmer, you did it again, and you just keep getting better and better I loved this book and am going on to Where the Buffalo Roam.
