A legend is born...and the saga begins. He'd come to the Rockies as a runaway twelve-year-old and grown into a living legend. He could out fight, out drink, out cuss, out dance, out ride and out lie any man alive. They called him Preacher...All Preacher has on his mind is a hankering for some companionship at the annual mountain man rendezvous in Popo Agie. But his plans change when he rides down into Fort Hall and finds he's the only man knowledgeable enough to lead a train of sixty wagons on the last leg of the rugged trail to Oregon, guiding a hundered greenhorns through the wilds of the northwest. Knowing he can't leave these settlers prey to all the bloodthirsty cutthroats and renegade Indians waiting in the wilderness, Preacher mounts the lead horse. He'll get the pilgrims through safely--or end up dead along the trail with the rest of them.
