A good western novel set in 1804 or so. The story is told by Ronan Chantry.
Ferguson himself gave him his rifle when Ronan was a boy. The main part of the
story begins when he goes west by himself after his wife and son were killed
in a house fire outside of Boston. He meets a group of mountain men and hooks
up with them. They rescue a young woman who is being chased by men who believe
she knows where treasure is hidden in the Rockies.
