Publisher's Summary

In this powerful novel, William W. Johnstone tells the story of a young Missourian forced by fate and violence into lawlessness - where he sees a chance to right the wrong that shattered his family and his soul.... 

Smoke Jensen is a young man raised on loss and bitterness, nurtured by a mountain man named Preacher. Now, Smoke Jensen, with a new black horse and an old grudge, slips over the unmarked border into the turbulent Idaho Territory. Ahead is a town called Bury, built on stolen gold, and run by a band of ruthless men who had a hand in the murder of Smoke's brother in the Civil War. Smoke's father died in pursuit of those killers, but urged his son not to waste his life on vengeance....  

Swift, powerful, and poetic, Return of the Mountain Man is an action-packed tale by William W. Johnstone, an American master - and a great chronicler of our harsh and often unforgiving last frontier.  

Contains mature themes.

Good listening.

Great book but the story line is mixed up with one of Preachers books. In the Preacher book he was married to Nicole not Smoke. Never could understand how the author got the two mixed up. Oh well still a good book.

Best Mountain Man listen so far

I was very happy to listen to this with J Rodney Turner reading. In my opinion J Rodney Turner should read ALL of the books that have Preacher in the story
