Overview

Men with dreams of gold flocked to the strikes in Idaho Territory in the early 1860s. Some were lucky, but only a few people managed to hang onto their fortunes. The Plummer Gang jumped claims, robbed miners, and murdered anyone who got in their way. Until Pokerface Bob Bainbridge showed up, seeking the man who'd ruined his sister--and out for personal revenge. From the saloons of Oro Fino to the tent cites of the Boise Basin, Bob follows the iniquitous gang, determined to bring law and order to the Territory and to save the woman he has grown to love from a fate far worse than death--at the hands of Plummer himself. Only incredible courage and steely determination will win the day. The Bitterroot Trail was originally published in 1935, both in the United States and in England. It is a classic Western novel, but it is also an exciting romance and one heck of a remarkable historical novel.

Editorial Reviews

Connie Crow
Hats off to James Johnson for bringing this action packed tale of the wild west to life again. A story of old when men were men and women were women and together they tamed the wilderness and made it home. A great read!
Francy Marcotta
Johnson's vivid descriptions of the Idaho landscape and its early settlements compliment the novel's equally rugged and unpolished characters.
