The Rocky Mountains of the early 1830s are as wild and untamed as the men who dare venture into them. Trappers, hunters, men with adventurous spirits, and those known as mountain men ride undaunted and unafraid into the harsh domain of the hostile and war-like red man.
Pinto Stade and Jehu Wolf are two such men-strong, brave hunters who enter the tall mountains searc hing out the unexplored valleys and crystal clear lakes that hold the treasure they seek. It's not gold; it's something much more valuable to these men. Furs-beaver, martin, fox, and other critters-are what they come for, and it's these furs that will bring cash money at rendezvous.
A novel filled with adventure, danger, and romance, Yellowstone Brigade rides with these hunters into the High Lonesome, narrating the savage ferocity of hostile warriors, grizzly bears, and the harsh elements of winter storms. It shares a piece of history the mountain men called the Shining Times.
