Publisher's Summary

This epic adventure will take you back to the Old West - 1830 in the Rocky Mountains. Packed with Northwest-wilderness period detail, it's the story of Josiah Paddock and Titus "Scratch" Bass. Paddock is a young man coming of age while running from the law, and Bass is a grizzled old mountain man who befriends Paddock and teaches him how to survive in this rugged country. Read by actor Ken Howard, star of TV's The White Shadow, this historical novel is rich and unforgettable.

Upset

Purchased this audio book because it is one of my favorite reads. It only has the first and last chapter of the book absolutely not worth the money I paid

Extremely Abridged

To call this abridged is certainly an understatement. Over half the book is left out and most of the key parts at that. Don't waste your time buy the book and actually get the story.
