This new biography about 'Liver Eating' Johnston is much, much better than is the 1st editon. I read the first book and it was jumbled and hard to read. I got hold of the 2nd printing of the revised book, and it is hugely better. I learned there was never a character named Jeremiah Johnson - only John Liver Eating Johnston, upon whose life Jeremiah was fictitiously based.

The Avenging Fury of the Plains tells the truth about the famous, or infamous, mountain man, John Liver Eating Johnston. Although Hollywood created the fictional Jeremiah Johnson, found in the movie of the same name, the book gives us the real truth about the real character - which, by the way, is more fascinating than the movie account. This is a great book.
