    Rich with description, the author paints an amazingly details picture of the naturally beautiful mountain landscape.
    You feel like you are there, watching the wildlife in the trees and by the river, with the air on your face and the earth underfoot.
    I noticed another Amazon review says that this is overly descriptive and written in the aristocratic style of Pride & Prejudice...
    However, I see that as a compliment to the author's writing. Just like Pride & Prejudice, the story takes place in a time long past -
    somewhere around the early 1800s, when men would set out to explore the unknown wilderness - working hard to survive the
    winters and harsh conditions to once again be part of the local fur trade. The narrative and language used is only fitting for such a story
     - and I'm impressed that the author was able to re-create this old-fashioned style of writing. I highly recommend this!

    For a mountain man, something as simple as coffee requires effort - gathering wood, creating a fire, building up the flames for
    the pot to heat upon - everything done on a stiff, cold winter morning. It really made me appreciate my warm home and coffee-maker,
    both completely free from grizzly bear attack.

    The main character, Thomas, is a seasoned frontiersman who finds a young Englishman, Washer, wounded and wandering
    through the snow - his companions having been slaughtered by the natives. Of course, being the mountain man, Thomas helps
    him to the safety of a nearby town. When the mountain man discovers that his profession, his life, for the past few decades, is no
    longer thriving and he has to find a new method of survival, Washer decides to go with him, intent on becoming a mountain man
    of his own... but he'll soon learn that life in the wilderness is not easy.
