(Two Books in One)
Before he became a legend, Preacher was a trapper peacefully plying his trade in the Rocky Mountains. But people needed a hero…and Preacher was the only one around.
Now, a wagon train of pioneers is struggling Westward toward Oregon through the howling winter – and a band of Arikara warriors are hot on their trail. Little do the Arikaras suspect that they’re about to come face-to-face – and gun-to-gun – with a ferocious fight they never expected…courtesy of a wily mountain man. As Preacher struggles to bring the settlers to safety, he learns the real reason they were attacked – and begins to suspect that the secrets they’ve been keeping equal a worse kind of danger. With treachery in the air, more Arikaras on the warpath, and a deadly deep freeze bearing down, trust is a thing of the past-and survival is the only thing that matters.
LAW OF THE MOUNTAIN MAN
Smoke Jensen sat in a cave and boiled the last of his coffee. He figured he was in Idaho-somewhere south of Montpelier-but he was certain about only two things: he was cold and he was being hunted by a small army of men. Smoke knew why he was cold-it was winter. He just didn’t have a clear idea of why anyone was after him.
He was soon to find out that he’d unwittingly ridden into the middle of the fiercest range war in years. Now he had to either choose sides or return home across the back of a horse. Smoke had never taken kindly to being bullied. . .so when Jud Vale and his cutthroat gang started pushing him around, Smoke Jensen just pushed right back.
