I have just finished reading this book ... and it kept me going at it that I read it in a couple of days. The copy I read was last copyrighted in 1985. I really like this book. I am strongly attracted to the Yellowstone area. So the area this novel is set in is an area that was ideal for me. I've read several other books by Will Henry's and have strongly liked.them, too. One thing I really like about Will Henry is that he gives the Native Americans a fair shake, too. He treats them well ... and I like that The Native Americans were often treated so badly in histoical reality, but in spite of that being part of this story, he treats them with dignity. I could say quite a bit more, but this will suffice to again repeat, this is a good book.

About the author (2003)

Novelist Henry Wilson Allen wrote more than 50 novels under the pseudonyms of Will Henry and Clay Fisher. He held a variety of jobs before becoming an author including a gold miner, blacksmith, house mover, sugar mill worker, and newspaper columnist. He called himself "a man born into the wrong century," and his work shows his fascination with the history and people of the nineteenth-century American West. Whether he is writing about Jesse James as a psychotic gunman in Death of a Legend (1954), Native Americans in From Where the Sun Now Stands (1960), or the explorers Lewis and Clark in Gates of the Mountains (1963), his careful historical research is evident. He often uses such devices as the alleged discovery of old diaries or family papers to make the reader think that the book is history rather than fiction, as in No Survivors (1950). His books are solidly crafted and always of high quality. He died of pneumonia in 1991 at the age of 79.
