Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed author of biographical and historical fiction Irving Stone turns his magnificent talent to telling America's most colorful and exciting story - the opening of the Far West.

Men to Match My Mountains is a true historical masterpiece, an unforgettable pageant of giants - men like John Sutter, whose dream of paradise was shattered by the California Gold Rush; Brigham Young and the Mormons, who tamed the desert with Bible texts; and the silver kings and the miners, who developed Nevada's Comstock Lode and settled the Rockies.

America called for greatness - and got it. There is nothing in history to match the stories of these men who braved wilderness to bring new nation to the shores of the Pacific.

what a great history!

i really enjoyed this recounting of the history of the US movement west. The narrator has a pleasant voice and seems to have a love for the material. the history itself is very well done, taking huge subject and presenting it in an informative and interesting way.

Perfect for a road trip in the West

Nearly 23 hours long, this was the perfect audio book for my trip West through New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota. An excellent history on the opening of the West in American history.

OK but too large of a subject for one book.

Lots of info that made the book more of a history sampeler then a good information source. At times I thought I was reading a history on Mormons in the west. It didnt seem balanced.
