A NovelBook - 1999
No one alive can bring the sights, sounds, and smells of the American frontier to life like Terry C. Johnston. His epic prose, as stirring and robust as the land and the people it celebrates, has thrilled a generation of loyal readers. In "Death Rattle", his newest and grandest novel, he again re-creates the fearsome and wondrous life of the free trappers of the Rockies.Most of the mountain men have either abandoned the mountains altogether or determined to make it on their own, doing whatever comes to hand; for some that means raiding, for others it means settling down in one place and trading. Titus Bass must find a way to carve a place for himself and his family on the changing and deadly frontier ... and stay one of the untamed breed.
