A Great Series
Reviewed in the United States on July 19, 2021
This series includes three books in one...Beginning 1832, Hannah and her Ma, Pa and four grown brothers all lived together. Hannah was picking berries in the woods, she heard screams from the cabin and ran home. Indians had attacked and killed her family and burned their cabin down. Hannah was in her teens, left alone and had to take care for herself. A strong mountain man was in town hiring older boys for the winter to trap beaver in the mountains.
These books were intense, interesting and entertaining with adventures and wild stories throughout. The older mountain man cared for and trained each one of the younger boys to become strong men so they could survive the mountains. It was interesting to learn about numerous Indian Tribes along the way in the snowy mountains..
The boys learned to love and care for their horses and acquired trapping skills in a short time. Each had their own personality, likes and dislikes. The boys grew into strong young men very fast, riding horse, tracking, roping, learning to trap beaver and having to fight indians. The plot was excellent with believable characters that I enjoyed. I felt that I was in the mountains with them. One of the best Mountain Men books I have read.
John Legg is an amazing author and a great storyteller. The series was long but I couldn't put it down.. As all mountain men did, the language could have been cleaned up some but it made the story more believable. I loved and enjoyed reading this Wonderful Series.
