(From the publisher):
Pennsylvania farm boy Sam Morgan learn's the mountain man's perilous trade when, in 1822, he joins a fur brigade headed by keelboat to the trackless country of the Upper Missouri River. Sam is youthful and inexperienced but also strong, daring, and a quick study. These are all requirements for surviving a battle with Arikiras, killing a man, falling in love with a Crow girl, and making a grueling 700-mile trek, alone, from the Sweetwater River in Wyoming to Fort Atkinson on the Missouri, testing his mettle in his debut year in the Western wildness.
In So Wild a Dream, Win Blevins has created a gripping, authentic, and captivating story of the men who marched the mountains of the Great American West.
