    I thought I'd give another western novel by William W Johnstone 1938 2004 a try The last that I read Preacher's Blood Hunt seemed less than stellar and received a 35 on my detailed scale As introduction to the protagonist in this series Preacher is a mountain man living in the early 1800's whose primary occupation is trapping Content with both solitude and good company Preacher's toughness and loyalty are legendary He often finds himself bound by honor and friendship to address the injustices common to his wilderness setting where the mindset is each manwoman for himherselfIn this installment Preacher is persuaded to accompany an old comrade now working for the American Fur Company and his unusual group of passengers on a dangerous trip up the rolling Missouri River in a riverboat A US Senator and his family and a Prussian Count and his entourage mix mingle and rub elbows and fists along the way Add to this volatile mixture a healthy dose of pirates Indians and one spy intent on causing a war between nations and you have the recipe for non stop action Without giving away too much of the plot this installment was in line with some of the earlier Johnstone novels The action while continuous was mixed with some romance and intrigue Multiple enemies gave the story depth than Preacher's Blood Hunt An enjoyable and uick read perfect for the beach Other than a slight case of sunburn On a detailed scale I'd provide this novel with a 43

    I really liked this one a thick pocket book a great story and lots of action Preacher agrees to go up the river on a paddle wheeler with another mountain man or less as a favor However he had no idea their cargo would include European aristocracy as well as a US congressman and family They were not surprised to have to fight off river pirates but they had not counted on being ambushed and taken hostage by a party of Indians led by someone from the boat passengers with a grudge

    Another solid outing by Johnstone and his First Mountain man Preacher This time Preacher is convinced to help a river boat filled with city folk travelling from the East to the West where Preacher is heading after selling his furs Bit of different setting but the same Preacher style and action A page turner
