    An enormously entertaining classic, The Way West brings to life the adventure of the western passage and the pioneer spirit. The sequel to The Big Sky, this celebrated novel charts a frontiersman's return to the untamed West in 1846. Dick Summers, as pilot of a wagon train, guides a group of settlers on the difficult journey from Missouri to Oregon. In sensitive but unsentimental prose, Guthrie illuminates the harsh trials and resounding triumphs of pioneer life. With The Way West, he pays homage to the grandeur of the western wilderness, its stark and beautiful scenery, and its extraordinary people.

    These Thousand Hills continues the western epic of A. B. Guthrie, Jr.'s, critically acclaimed Big Sky series. This vivid American saga conjures up the world of cattle ranchers in the 1880s, focusing on a Montana community's boisterous, wanderlusting eccentrics as they chase after love and unbridled ambitions. At its center is Lat Evens, a goodhearted cowboy who strikes out from Oregon to Montana on a cattle drive, determined to succeed as a rancher. Gradually, though, he discerns how the perils of the world, especially human nature, can conspire to frustrate a man's best intentions.
