Life on the frontier can often be brutal. Behind the untamed beauty of the Rockies lurks the danger and hardship of harsh conditions that only the strongest can endure. So when Artemis Borke opened a new trading post in Nate King’s territory, everyone was delighted, including Touch the Clouds, tribal leader of the neighboring Shoshones. Finally, settlers and Shoshones alike would have access to goods and supplies. Soon, however, things started to go wrong. Borke wasn’t just selling trade goods, he was also selling liquor, which had severe consequences for the Shoshone warriors and their families. Even worse, Borke started trading with Crows, selling rifles to the enemies of Touch the Clouds’ people. What began as a blessing soon turned into a grave threat. The once peaceful Shoshone village, torn apart by Borke’s firewater, would be an easy target for the bloodthirsty Crows. Will Touch the Clouds, Nate King and his son be able to stop the bloodshed before it’s too late?
The vast American frontier was filled with unimaginable beauty, natural wonders … and incredible danger. One of the fiercest of the predators that called the Rockies home was the great grizzly bear, an awe-inspiring creature, but also one of nature’s most fearsome killers. When a huge grizzly began to threaten the native Utes, they turned to their friend Nate King for help. Who better to trap a grizzly bear than the legendary “Grizzly Killer,” as Nate had become known among the Shoshones? Nate’s reputation as a hunter and tracker had spread throughout his mountain home. But as the famous frontiersman set out to end the reign of terror caused by the rogue bear, he quickly saw that he would need all of his renowned skills and abilities. This was no ordinary grizzly, and it would take a far-from-ordinary man to kill it.
