Overview

One-Eyed Dream is the final volume in Terry C. Johnston's exciting trilogy of the rugged trappers and mountain men, Indian fighters, and hardy pioneers who battled for the future of this land--and won.

High in the Rockies lay the Bayou Salade, a lush beaver-rich valley so untouched that the few white men who had seen it called it paradise.  But for Scratch Bass, his young partner Josiah Paddock, and the two Indian women they loved, this paradise would open up a hell of violence.  Pursued by a vengeful Arapaho raiding party, Scratch will lead his small band through a flurry of arrows all the way to Taos itself. Yet the trail of blood will not end there.  For in St. Louis an old enemy waits, and the time is ripe for Scratch to settle a ten-year score.  Through the desert known as the Journey of Death to the rough-and-tumble town of St. Louis, Scratch and Josiah will defy the wilderness to bury the past--and a blackhearted killer--once and for all.

This is the final book in the trilogy that began with Carry the Wind and Borderlords. Scratch Bass and Josiah Paddock leave the serene Bayou Salade for the civilization of St. Louis where Scratch has a score to settle with a black-hearted killer. Original.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Although identified as the third book in a trilogy (after Carry the Wind and Borderloris), the final line in this volume reads: ``This ain't the last you've heard of Titus Bass!'' Bass is the hard-bitten, one-eyed ``old'' (40) trapper and mountain man who's befriended orphan Josiah Paddock. In 1833 they and their Indian wives, and Josiah's infant son, make their way to an idyllic spot in northern New Mexico, later moving on to Taos for the winter. Titus discovers that two ex-friends who stole his catch 10 years before are still alive and he sets out to wreak his revenge. Josiah travels with him to St. Louis where old M. LeClerc has plotted for years to avenge his son's death at Josiah's hands. The LeClerc tale has nice gothic possibilities but ends in soggy sentimentality. Despite much gory detail about skinning game, killing Indians (about three dozen of various tribes are dispatched) and minute descriptions of life in old St. Louis and on the frontier, the book founders under writing that is repetitious, fatuous and occasionally just bad: `` . . . the annual affair came but once a year.'' Paperback rights to Bantam; Preferred Choice Book Plan alternate. (April)
