The movie Jeremiah Johnson introduced millions to the legendary mountain man, John Johnson. The real Johnson was a far cry from the Redford version. Standing 6’2" in his stocking feet and weighing nearly 250 pounds, he was a mountain man among mountain men, one of the toughest customers on the western frontier. As the story goes, one morning in 1847 Johnson returned to his Rocky Mountain trapper’s cabin to find the remains of his murdered Indian wife and her unborn child. He vowed vengeance against an entire Indian tribe. Crow Killer tells of that one-man, decades-long war to avenge his beloved. Whether seen as a realistic glimpse of a long ago, fierce frontier world, or as a mythic retelling of the many tales spun around and by Johnson, Crow Killer is unforgettable. This new edition, redesigned for the first time, features an introduction by western frontier expert Nathan E. Bender and a glossary of Indian tribes.

Before his most fabulous adventure (celebrated by John G. Neihardt in The Song of Hugh Glass and by Frederick Manfred in Lord Grizzly), Hugh Glass was captured by the buccaneer Jean Lafitte and turned pirate himself until his first chance to escape. Soon he fell prisoner to the Pawnees and lived for four years as one of them before he managed to make his way to St. Louis. Next he joined a group of trappers to open up the fur-rich, Indian-held territory of the Upper Missouri River. Then unfolds the legend of a man who survived under impossible conditions: robbed and left to die by his comrades, he struggled alone, unarmed, and almost mortally wounded through two thousand miles of wilderness.

A High Sierra Christmas is a tale of the West, narrated in the 'old west' style. It's a story of Jeremiah Johnson and his 'later in life' adventures in the High Sierra-Nevada mountain range. Two old cowboys, looking for gold, seek out Johnson and ask him to guide them to their dreams in the rugged High Sierra. In this fireside story, Jeremiah and his Indian friend, John Windwalker, embark on that adventure with Jeremiah's visiting young nieces, Carrie and Hannah, and his nephew, Marc. The group embarks on a difficult journey up the east side of the majestic, white granite range, headed toward Mineral King on its western slopes. But, when the bank in Big Pine is robbed, three lawless men in their getaway head up the trail right behind them. What happens next is a long way from what you might expect. You'd best saddle up and ride along! Mark Stephen Taylor is the award-winning author of Hiking the Trail of Truth, Knowing God through His Creation, published by Xulon Press in February 2009. A retired California peace officer, educated in criminal psychology, geology, and now a Biblical teacher and counselor, Mr. Taylor has spent many years exploring the wonders of the American Southwest. His experiences and knowledge have produced a unique style of writing that is appreciated by both the educated and the common among us. He has climbed the highest of our western mountains and camped in our lowest deserts. He has spent time among the Native Americans and learned much about the creation and its wildlife through their counsel. Encouraged by his mother as a boy to create a western story, he now makes a dream come true and gives us a bit of fiction and reality in this truly inspiring narrative of the old west.
