After a grizzly kills his pa, Zach struggles to survive a cold and brutal winter alone. After killing a rouge grizzly and fighting hostile Indians on his own, he becomes known as Grizzly Killer and is respected throughout the West.
Along with his dog, Jimbo, whom the Indians call the Great Medicine Dog, he finds Running Wolf, an injured Ute warrior, and together they fight off a hostile war party. They rescue two Shoshone sisters from the brutality of a French trapper and take them as wives. After Zach saves Running Wolf's beautiful sister, Shining Star, he is expected to take her as a second wife, but his Christian beliefs conflict with the Indian traditions, and he struggles within himself to accept the Indian ways.
Set in the rugged Uinta Mountains of Northern Utah, this is a story of survival against nature and hostile Indians and the clash of cultures between the Indians and mountain men that were the first to brave this uncharted wilderness, seeking their fortune from the pelts of the beaver.

Entertaining cool story
Very entertaining story. Well written , and well read. Has a very distinct diary style and perfectly reflects the feel of the Rocky Mointain fur trade era. Liked it a lot, and downloading book II now.

Great book, great series
I really enjoyed this series. It is certainly, in many ways currently very politically incorrect. But, I have waited close to 40 years to find this book. One of my greatest pleasures as a young teenager was reading stories about the frontier, the mountain men, the long hunters, etc. This series has the one thing I always wanted from those old stories but never found. The “heroes” of those old stories were invariably Natty Bumppo type characters who were quick to live and to survive by learning from and emulating the native Americans’ ways. But, at the same time they always considered themselves superior and were always quick to point out their own “white Christian” superiority to the heathen red skins “nature.” In those old stories the Native American’s were never more than the hero’s “sidekick.” They were never equals. It was a joy to find none of that in this book. If you are looking for a good solid story of good guys and bad guys, strong heroes and beautiful heroines then this is a book I can certainly recommend.
