William W. Johnston writes the best, hardest to put down series I've ever read. His books are facinating. They talk about men that my dad talked about when he'd tell his growing up stories.He could have been an old mountain man. This particular book, JOURNEY OF A MOUNTAIN MAN was the first one of the series I read.It takes place in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. Since I was born and raised in Montana and lived in all the rest of these states made the books even more readable.Then when I finished the book I went to the used bookstore I trade at and found many more of the series that had come before. I have not went wrong with any book Mr. Johnston has written. He has several series out such as THE BLOOD BOND SERIES, and THE EAGLES SERIES, and THE LAST GUNFIGHTER SERIES. They are all great reads. I just loved them all. They talk about the magnificent West and the totally magnificent men that populated it. The books display humor (in some),honor,courage, and chivilary. This is what being a man is all about as far as I'm concerned. My husband even read all the ones I found, too. He was a strictly a Louis LAMour reader. I was thrilled to have found something he could read and enjoy that was not a repeat. Myself included.

On the way he looks up some old tough mountain men friends. He knows the battle will be tough and he might even loose. But if he did how would we be able to read another book? Maybe he will win!!

Hard to put down. Must start with the first book - Great! May 13 1998
By Vincent Horek (vincent.horek@trw.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
A boy growing up, starting at the end of the Civil War. His father comes home after the war and they head west. They make friends with a famous mountain man who takes in the boy after his father dies. He teaches the boy everything to survive in the mountains.He becomes Smoke Jensen, a gunfighter by necessity and has many adventures. Marries and together begin ranching and fighting the badmen from Colorado to New York. Smoke fights for the helpless and his home. This is a series of books the start with "The Last Mountain". Also a short series about the mountain man, starting with "The First Mountain Man". Both series never get boring. In fact, they are hard to put down. The only western series I've enjoyed next to Louis Lamour's series "The Sackets".

Another great story by William Johnstone April 16 2008
By Douglas G. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is another in the Mountain Man series that those familiar with Johnstone's work, and those new to the author, should definitely read.

Smoke Jensen gets a letter from a relative while home at his ranch. He takes off, of course, to help out family.

For those who keep track, it is 1882, and Smoke and Sally's twins are one year old.

With the help of his old mountain man friends, Smoke saves the ranch for his cousins, brother and sister, and with his friends to help, a bunch of bad guys cease to populate the earth.

Even his prissy cousin, as Smoke describes him, finally turns out to be quite a man after all.

The story is just as exciting as all the others by Johnstone, and I highly recommend it.

Loved the story... Hated the typos!!! June 18 2014
By Booklover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm giving it a 3 star rating because of the editing mistakes... If not for those it would be a 5 star rating...I love William Johnstone! This book was a great story... If it wasn't for that, I would have put it away after the first chapter... I'm sorry, but the typos in the Kindle edition was so distracting. It's a shame the editing was almost non-existent. I found myself getting very irritated because some of the errors were so blatant. Example: "It 11 be good to see Sally and the babies." Even if it is just missing an apostrophe for It'll. or the wi for will, it shouldn't of had 11 (eleven) this book was full of errors of this kind. Most of the apostrophes were missing in the contractions and the Swedish accents weren't consistent either... Example: "maybe ve vill get lucky and day will all bite demselves....etc. will should have been vill to continue with the Swedish accent... Not sure if the printed book is this way, but the Kindle version has mistakes all through the book... The constant space between Smo ke was irritating also...I stopped counting after 57! If these types of mistakes don't bother you, then get the book and enjoy the story of Smoke Jensen and his gun toting friends save his cousin and the surrounding ranches...
