Preacher is a mountain man, a wanderer, trapper, and a fighter as the need arises. When he finds himself in charge of a wagon train of clueless eastern pilgrims, he must put all his cunning, knowledge, and experience into play, in order to keep himself and his charges from dying at the hands of renegade Blackfeet and murdering outlaws.

I enjoyed this story, and look forward to reading another in the series. ( )

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.… (more)
