Publisher's Summary

Mauled by a giant grizzly and left to die, 16 year-old Jose Olano's chances for life were remote. Then, like a guardian angel, came Robert "Gray Eagle" McAllister, one-time army scout and sometime outlaw. In his flight to escape a posse, he finds the brutalized body of Jose. Knowing his decision to help Jose may mean his own death, he stays and brings Jose back from the brink of death. With Gray Eagle's teaching, Jose, the simple sheepherder, becomes a legendary "man of the wilderness." Thus began one of the greatest companionships ever known to the Idaho frontier.

    Story
    "A Winner about Western Mountain Living"
    What did you love best about Death of an Eagle?

    Kirby Jones knows the western mountains better than most western writers. He teaches survival methods through his major character-Macalister. His descriptions of the area, the Indians, and the characters are vividly portrayed, like a movie in my head.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great Plot. Keeps moving. Believable


    What about James Drury’s performance did you like?

    He read clearly, good volume, and professional.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending was emotional, but realistic, and matched Jose's values and character.


    Any additional comments?

    Anxious to read more books by K. Jones
