Overview

Young Josiah Paddock, on the run from his past in St. Louis, didn't have much hope of survival.  Winter was coming to the Rockies, and if the cold cutting through his city clothes didn't kill him, grizzlies or Indians would.  Then his luck tumed.  He stumbled across the trail of Ol' Scratch, a solitary mountain man eager enough for company to take the brash youngster under his wing.  Pure chance brought Paddock to the old trapper's camp, but it was skill with a gun and a knife that kept them both alive as they rode deep into the majestic land of Blackfeet and Crow, bible-spouting pioneers and sensual woman where only the best and braves survived . . . and only the luckiest rode back again. Carry The Wind is a gripping historical saga set in the Grand Tetons during a time when the horizon never ended and a nation was being born.

    Terrific! An all-around winner!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the 2 books that followed. It provided great insight into the world of the fur trappers, explorers, and many other types of brave folk who set out west during the 19th century. Titus Bass and his impromptu partner Paddock proved to be indelible characters, who's stories and personalities made for truly enjoyable reading. In the end though (for me at least) Bass and Paddocks burgeoning relationship and the adventures and mishaps they went and got through together made the book. Add to that an exceedingly well written text, methodically researched history, and everything from battles, accidents, murder, falling in love, passion, hate, and much MUCH MORE and you've got your self a damn good book to read! Pick it up, I promise you won't be disappointed.
    P.S. I especially recommend this book to those who like history like I do!
