Publisher's Summary

The true story (on which the film Jeremiah Johnson was partially based) of John Johnson, who in 1847 found his wife and her unborn child had been killed by Crow braves. Out of this tragedy came one of the most gripping feuds - one man against a whole tribe - in American history.

Great Book!!!

Very informative book, fascinating stories of a time gone bye. The accents that were complained about, I found endearing.

Good story, slow narrator.

Truly enjoyed the tale of the Liver-eater. But the narrator was a bit slow (ended up listening to the whole thing at x1.50 speed).
