William W. Johnstone’s vivid, uncompromising novels stand as violent portraits of the rugged American frontiersman and the forces that forged him. In this powerful novel, 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 his, 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 in 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.

Return of the Mountain Man


“What do you mean, I can’t come in?” Buck said, standing on the front porch of the Pink House.

“Buck,” Sally’s voice came through the closed door. “You’d better get out of town. Sheriff Reese and his deputies are looking for you. Word just drifted into town that you’re Smoke Jensen.”

So the cat was out of the bag. Fine, he was getting tired of being Buck West.

“Do you ladies have plenty of food and water,” he said. “Enough for a month-long siege?”

“Go away, Buck,” came the answer.

“Call me Smoke,” he said…

About William W. Johnstone:

Just to give you a brief rundown on who William W. Johnstone is, here are the basic facts. He was born in Southern Missouri, the youngest of four kids. His father was a minister and his mother was a schoolteacher.

He quit school when he was fifteen and joined a carnival after getting kicked out of the FFL (for being underage), but he went back and finished high school in 1957. After that he worked as a deputy sheriff, did a hitch in the army, came back and went into radio broadcasting, where he worked for sixteen years.

Johnstone started writing in 1970, but he didn't get published until late 1979. He has written almost a hundred books including the best-selling Ashes series and the Mountain Man series. He began writing full-time in the early 1980s and hasn't stopped since. His first published book was THE DEVIL'S KISS and his favorite, so far, is THE LAST OF THE DOG TEAM.
