In this fireside tale, Jeremiah and his Indian friend, John Windwalker, embark on that adventure with his visiting young nieces, Carrie and Hannah, and his nephew, Marc. The group rides out on a difficult journey up the east side of the majestic, white granite range, headed toward Mineral King on its western slopes. But, when the bank in Big Pine is robbed, three lawless men in their getaway head up the trail right behind them.
This is a continuation of the legend of the great white wolf first introduced in the author's work Still Waters: Legend of the White Wolf. In this enduring sequel, the town of Lone Pine and surrounding ranches, as well as the village of the Shoshone, are threatened by an attack from the Paiute tribe to the south. This of course disrupts the ordinary lives of the story's characters, but when the great white wolf returns to the area under a harvest moon, there is indeed great hope. However, not all believe in the legendary white wolf.
Welcome to another Lone Pine Western by award-winning author, Mark Stephen Taylor. Still Waters is a journey amidst the heartbeat of the High Sierra; Lone Pine California and Mount Whitney - the highest mountain in the contiguous U.S.A. This is a story of the great, white wolf, who in legend takes on the spirit of a Native American man and seeks to protect both the animals and the people of 1874 Lone Pine.
