THE MOUNTAINS BREED 'EM BIG AND HARD--AND NO ONE'S BIGGER AND HARDER THAN... MOUNTAIN JACK PIKE!
RANDY, ROUGH, AND ALWAYS AT THE READY THEY DON'T COME ANY HARDER THAN MOUNTAIN JACK PIKE!
A brawling, broad-shouldered, bear of a man, he's the best dang trapper in the Rockies--a bigger-than-life mountain man with a nose for beaver and a taste for hard-living; he's Mountain Jack Pike!
It was bad enough coming back from a beaver hunt empty-handed, but to make matters worse, someone had gone and burnt Pike's cabin to the ground and manhandled his pretty squaw Sun Rising. Needless to say, the hot-blooded Pike is fired up for revenge.
The upstanding mountain man vows to track down the mangy range rats who defiled his happy homestead. But when he comes upon a pair of hot trail tramps with their own score to settle, Pike finds it hard to say no... especially when the luscious ladies bend over backwards to give him what he needs. Yet when morning rises so does Pike, just as hard as ever, and ready for an explosive climax that will guarantee the lusty mountain man comes out on top!
