Zach befriends a young dog, Jimbo, and rescues an injured Ute warrior, Running Wolf, setting his leg and helping to nurse him back to health. These three form a tightly knit group of friends, capable of fighting off a hostile band of Indians, and saving two Shoshone sisters from a cruel French trapper. The two lovely Indian maidens, Sun Flower and Raven Wing, become wives to Zach and Running Wolf.
Zach’s ideals are sorely tested when he rescues Running Wolf’s beautiful sister, Shining Star, and is expected to take her to wife as well. The white man’s ways conflict with accepted Indian beliefs and Zach must wrestle with his conscience as he struggles to find his place in this new land. Yet, Zach finds love, friendship, honor, and fame among these courageous mountain men and noble Indians. The end of the story leaves the reader with a tantalizing and spiritual glimpse of the future, one which lingers in the mind long after the last page is turned.
Lane Warenski writes of the rugged Uinta Mountains of northern Utah with an artist’s hand. His descriptions are so vivid that one can almost hear the fluttering rustle of the quakies dancing on the wind, smell the pungent scent of trappers gathered around a campfire, and hear the painful shriek of rapists as the natives enforce their own version of justice upon them. The western United States was settled by men and women such as these, people of courage and honor, who appreciated beauty, friendship, fairness and the rightful balance of our place upon this Earth. I cannot wait to read the second book in this marvelous adventure!
Mountain country. Just a little bit too much of a travelogue and a bit too little action, but an enjoyable novel just the same.
