(Two Books in One)
QUEST OF THE MOUNTAIN MAN
A visionary has a dream: to drive a railroad across the North American continent and through the vast Canadian Rockies. A thousand miles of rugged land stand in the way. So do hostile Indian tribes and outlaws who the see the railroad and the men building it as easy prey. But the project has a guardian angel of its own Smoke Jensen.
Smoke knows that this is one job he can’t do himself, so he heads to Canada with some hard-fighting mountain men from the Colorado Rockies at his side. By the time the railroad passes through Vancouver, Smoke needs every gun he can get. An army of cross-border outlaws who call themselves The Midwesterners is wreaking havoc on the tracks. Now, with a dream turning into a nightmare of steel ribbons stained with blood, Smoke Jenson knows there’s only way to run this railroad: over mountains, though clouds of choking gun smoke and straight into one hell of a fight.
TREK OF THE MOUNTAIN MAN
It didn’t matter that the warrant was years old, or that Smoke Jensen had been cleared of all charges. A Texas bounty hunter named Bill Pike believed he could still collect a $10,000 reward for killing Jensen-and he intended to do just that.
But when Pike and his men came calling, Jensen was nowhere to be found. So they took the next best thing-Smoke’s woman-left behind a ransom note, and headed up into the Rocky Mountains. Now, Smoke is going after a gang of vicious shootists. With time running out, and Sally’s life hanging in the balance, he is returning to the high country where he came of age and built his legend. But this time, the mountain man won’t come back down until he’s stopped a bounty hunter bearing a worthless piece of paper and a mother lode of greed. It’s kill or be killed, and Smoke Jensen intends to be the last man standing, no matter how many people-or guns-he has to face.
