The Yellowstone Publisher's Summary

Bold men and women risked their lives in the vast western wilderness to carve a life for themselves... to hunt, to trade, to fight, to love. One such man was Robert Burns “The Dancer” Maclean, who found his destiny in the mountains above the Yellowstone, the swift river that rumbles through two majestic waterfalls flowing onto the vast plains of Montana. In this story, Mac’s incredible courage and deep compassion make him a legend of the land, where generations to come will honor his memory and build upon the great legacy he creates on the fertile banks of the Yellowstone.

    Through the rolling grasslands of Kansas runs the Smoky Hill River, a rich source of opportunity for those bold enough to risk the dream-killing territory. For Gabe, mountain-man and scout, the river means freedom and a chance to map unexplored territory with the Great Pathfinder, John Charles Fremont. For Lem, an Illinois farm boy in pursuit of gold, it is a cruel foe who robs him of his family and his youth. For Jesse, a young Union corporal, this is the country that took his father and uncle and where he must fight warring Indians.

The men and women who tamed this savage land were tough, lawless, and when necessary, as mean as the traps they carried. They lived by a private code of proud honor and swift justice. Burly, broad-shouldered Isaac Beard is the living embodiment of that mountain code. To survive, he will have to fight his way to a safe haven near Spirit Lake in the Colorado upcountry....

    Along the harsh North California coast the otters swam, enough to fill the Russians' trading ships with valuable pelts. So there they raised an outpost. But inland lay another land, a river wilderness, where game and grizzly thrived. Into this wild land, stripped of his rank for marrying an Indian girl, Lieutenant Anton Rostov is cast. He is an man without a country, but still he is a man. He can hunt, trap, and conquer. And he discovers a power greater than his allegiance to a faraway Czar - the lure of a new world.

In the middle flowed a mighty river - silent, glistening, and turbulent - the bloodline of a wide and wild land. Three hard, tough men staked their claims on its potent shores: Jake Stonecipher, pioneer merchant, seeking his fortune yet finding a war; Will Burke, a mountain man as savage as the wilderness itself; and Francisco Serrano, determined to carve a fertile ranch out of the stubborn soil.

Among them were Jon Tallman, a wanderer and adventurer; Nancy Stafford, a strong-willed pioneer; Jacobs, a wagon train leader; and Alan.
