This second book in William W. Johnstone classic The First Mountain Man series finds Preacher leading a wagon train of settlers into the Rockies—straight into dangerous, lawless territory. Low on supplies and spirits, the settlers are soon trapped on the Continental Divide in a blinding blizzard. Just when things become impossibly dire, Preacher and his party find themselves at the mercy of the vicious and blood-drunk Pardee brothers. Hurtling into the fray is a marauding band of Utes. It’s a hopeless situation for any common gunfighter—but the legend of Preacher will be built one bullet after another . . .
