Publisher's Summary

He will become a legend...

Before the legend of Preacher there was a man, and before the man there was a boy. In this thrilling new novel, William W. Johnstone tells the story of a young man filled with wanderlust and raw courage - who will someday become a hero.

...if he survives...

On nothing more than a lark, he leaves his family and begins a journey from Ohio westward. Along the way, he runs up against badlands and bad men, loses his freedom, gains his freedom, and learns the first rule of the frontier: Do whatever it takes to survive.

...Preacher.

With ruthless enemies after him - both white men and Indians - he'll head for a place as brutal as it is beautiful - the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains. Two years later, he will come back down from the mountaintop with new skills, and a new future as one of the most feared and admired men of his time...a man called Preacher.

A Great Origin Story for a Legend!

The narrator's voice was so captivating it felt like he was reading a story from memories of the event.

I started my journey to these books by first reading the Frontiersman series about Breckenridge Wallace. It was in book 2 of that series that I met the legend known as Preacher. It was only after reading all four books that I found out that the Mountain Man series was about Preacher. I was so anxious to read them and in order that I did not know if I'd like them as much since the narrator was different. But, to my delightful surprise this narration made this book feel like a different story in the same universe that I appreciated it even more. I cannot wait to read every book in this series!!!

Ps. I say read because the outcome is the same even if listened to. The difference is that I get to hear a variety of different voices for every character versus when I try to read a book!

Another great book about Preacher however, just as he would be wondering if he were real, I'm wondering why in the world this is book 8 instead of book 1, makes no sense.
