Nathaniel Squire is a giant of a man, and the only one Col. Leander Melton thought could lead his pack of greenhorn would-be trappers into the mountains – and deep in Blackfoot territory.

After having haunting ghosts of the past return, and tiring of leading a large brigade of trappers, giant mountain man Nathaniel Squire heads to the Rockies. Squire and his small group of friends plunge headlong into another war with the Blackfeet – and then, one way or the other, take to the vengeance trail.

HONOR FORCES BOUNTY HUNTER ELIAS PROSPER TO TRACK DOWN A RENEGADE UTE, NO MATTER THE COST.
Bounty hunter Elias Prosper is as tough a man as the West has produced. But as hard as he is, he has a soft spot for children and women. When a Ute named Painted Bear casts off the ways of the white man and spirits away a Ute boy and a white woman, both of whom Prosper had rescued earlier, the bounty hunter ignores his wife’s pleas to stay home and instead heads into the mountains to hunt down the renegade warrior.
Bounty hunter Brodie Pike cannot see all the good he has done, only the infrequent mistakes. So he decides to get away from people.

Blaming himself for a white men’s attack on a peaceful Ute village, and the defiling of an eleven-year-old girl, Pike embarks on a trail of vengeance to make the white demons pay a bloody price.
Brodie Pike knew he shouldn’t get involved. It would somehow turn out bad, as seemed to happen too often to him, but he couldn’t watch four gunmen bully a small-time rancher. The next day, the man he had helped is found beaten to death. Though he knows he is responsible for Dunn’s death, he refuses to help the group of small ranchers who know that the Buckskin County Cattlemen’s Association will be coming for their land soon.
Months later, he reads that the association has started its campaign of terror against the small ranchers. Against the odds, he decides to throw in with them, facing the association’s horde of hired guns, risking his life in the bloody, violent Buckskin County war, where death is always just one bullet away.
