EXPERIENCE A NEW ADVENTURE AMIDST THE GREAT AMERICAN WEST WITH THE AWARD-WINNING RENDEZVOUS MOUNTAIN MAN SERIES.
Dancing with the Golden Bear
When the enigmatic Jedediah Smith puts together a brigade of trappers for an expedition into the unknown territory of Mexican California, Sam Morgan joyfully joins up. With his Crow Indian wife Meadowlark and his coyote pup at his side, Sam sees the expedition as a chance for adventure—and wealth.
But when the search for the magnificent Buenaventura River proves to be a myth, their trek becomes a living nightmare. Struggling through the Mojave Desert, their lives are at the behest of a strange band of naked Indians. And so, like ghosts, they change course to the San Gabriel Mission—a sanctuary they’ll have to reach if they ever hope to see another day.
Heaven is a Long Way Off
It’s 1827, and Sam—along with the trapping brigade commanded by Captain Smith—are facing the most daunting task of their adventuresome lives. Having been expelled from Mexican California, they must make a trek to the Wind Rivers for the sake of Sam’s Crow wife and their infant daughter, Esperanza.
But upon their return to California, Sam discovers Esperanza was taken captive in an Indian raid. In a desperate mission to rescue her Sam and his trapper companions brave a rampaging river, a long trek home, and a harrowing journey of wild elements and discovery.
Immerse yourself in this western narrative of adventure, love, and revelation, where the unbridled essence of the authentic American frontier unravels at every turn.
