Rory: Mountain Man And Longhunter: A Western Adventure (The First Of The Mountain Men Western Series Book 1) Kindle Edition
A brand new Mountain Man adventure from Mike Mackessy!
In 1780s Ireland, sixteen-year-old Rory is the second son to a stable owner. Rory breaks an unforgivable law; he kills an English officer. The officer rides one of the family horses to death. In a rage, Rory beats the officer to death. Rory is rushed from Ireland across the sea to France, where he joins the Irish Brigade of the French Army.
Rory, after fifteen years of fighting for France, is judged unfit for duty. Having earned the nickname the Lead Mine, a doctor reckons Rory has reached his pinnacle in the French Army. Rory sails for the New World. In a twist of events, he meets John Colter.
Rory avoids the local Indians. During a fall during a buffalo hunt, he is attacked by the buffalo wolves. Hearing the shots and fearing trouble, a family of River Crow rescue Rory. Nature runs her course; Rory falls in love with the oldest daughter. Not understanding Crow traditions, Rory gifts her father and older brother horses. In the Crow tradition, he’s paid the bride price for her sister as well. A gift of horses earns Rory a second wife. It’s time to learn Crow customs and language.
With two Crow wives. Rory twice comes to the aid of lost American women. They join the family as wife three and four. Follow this extended family as they carve a home in the wilds of the Great Stoney Mountains. Along the way, Rory fights Blackfoot, grizzly bears, cougars, outlaw trappers, and of course hunts his share of buffalo.
This is a story of a flawed man trying to find peace in turbulent times. Along the way he finds love, four times. With an expanding brood, Rory strives to learn life’s lesson. He is helped along the way by both friends and enemies.
He lives by hunting and trapping in the Rocky Mountains, a Longhunter and one of the first of the Mountain Men. Grab your copy today!
