Overview

The Mountain Man Series chronicles the 19th century life of Jeremiah Warner. Tragedy claims his family in the Texas Panhandle when Jeremiah is only eighteen years old. His brief journey of vengeance is told in the first volume of this series: "The Windrider."
Having accomplished his violent goal, the young man drifts toward the Rocky Mountain Wilderness where he hears of the lucrative beaver trade. He begins his trapping in the High mountain streams and develops a reputation among the native Americans as a powerful adversary, a great Warrior. This part of his life is told in the novel, "The Wolf Man Warrior."
His life as a trapper in the mountains makes him feel closer to the Indians of the region than to the whites who are invading the territory in ever greater numbers. He is adopted into the Blackfoot Tribe and shares the traditions and struggles of this noble people. This part of his life is told in the novel, "Winter Wilderness."
The epic journey of this man through time is filled with lessons and insight. He continues to follow the unfolding Destiny that changes the face of the wilderness each season. In the previous volume he was the Pathfinder, scouting the Oregon Trail through the Rocky Mountain Wilderness. Westward Wagons, Ho! wrote another chapter in the Story of the Wolf Man Warrior, Jeremiah Warner.
The fifth title, Wolf Hound Vengeance, follows the traplines of the Mountain Man and his constant companion, a wolf dog mixed breed, who serves as his eyes and ears in the forest, and at times becomes a killing machine. The bond between them is one that gets challenged by a group of outlaws who have been terrorizing the frontier. They meet with frontier justice at the hands of the Mountain Man, and the jaws of his companion, the Wolf Hound.
The story of Jeremiah Warner continues as he is confronted with the capture of his women and children by the Pawnee War Party. His primary weapon against overwhelming odds is his Wolf Hound. The massive dog serves as his eyes and ears, and as his guardian in fighting those who would violate his life. The wilderness law is a life for a life, it is inexorable.
"So this is the way of the warrior, no?" Chief Red Fox asked.
"It can be no other way, it seems, they threaten the lives of our loved ones, they kill those we cherish like old Chief Red Hawk, and in exchange we give back the same. In my culture when we barter, we give a service for something of value. In warfare the coinage is life, my life or your life, their life in return for mine. Honor among warriors is a deceptive mistress, it leaves no quarter to the other," the Mountain Man said.
This 5th volume finds the Mountain Man defending what is his to protect, his family his adopted people, the Blackfeet. His companion the Wolf Hound makes them a fierce fighting force.

Meet the Author

With this fifth volume of the Mountain Man Series, Robert M. Johnson has once again captured the fierce intensity of the life of a 19th century Trapper. Hardly twenty-five years after the Louisiana Purchase, and the Rocky Mountains were beginning to feel the intrusion of white settlers. Very few were able to fit in so seamlessly with the native inhabitants as men like Jeremiah Warner, called by his enemies the Wolf Man Warrior.
His constant companion, a wolf dog mixed breed, serves as his eyes and ears in the forest, and at times becomes a killing machine. The bond between them is one that gets challenged by a group of outlaws who have been terrorizing the frontier. They meet with frontier justice at the hands of the Mountain Man, and the jaws of his companion, the Wolf Hound.
But after this challenge is forcefully met, another arises when his women and children are kidnapped by the Pawnee War Party. The Author opens the window into life on the frontier with these exciting tales of the Mountain Man.
