    Not a bad story however the writing is like reading an essay written by a middle school kid, to fill in a 500 word composition. Often I found sometimes up to two paragraphs to convey what could have been written in two words and often is at the beginning of the tirade. On top of that the story is pretty predictable with nearly the same pattern for each year of trapping. Some details are not what would have actually happened in the stories circumstances. Such as hunting "bull" buffalo for meat wh Not a bad story however the writing is like reading an essay written by a middle school kid, to fill in a 500 word composition. Often I found sometimes up to two paragraphs to convey what could have been written in two words and often is at the beginning of the tirade. On top of that the story is pretty predictable with nearly the same pattern for each year of trapping. Some details are not what would have actually happened in the stories circumstances. Such as hunting "bull" buffalo for meat when a cow provides much better eating and better quality hides. And biscuits at nearly every meal while trapping. Bread was extremely scarce to almost nonexistent to the trappers of the time period. I do not recommend this book, I had a hard time reading it all the way through.

    Not what I'd hoped for. It is seldom that I simply lose interest in a book, but I couldn't stick this one out. I felt more like I was reading a very verbose text book rather than a story.

    Awesome Book! Awesome Book, just couldn't stop reading it. I just hope that the other books written by Terry Grosz are half as good as this one. Awesome Book! Awesome Book, just couldn't stop reading it. I just hope that the other books written by Terry Grosz are half as good as this one.

    The Saga of The Barnes Clan, Mountain Men This is a good read and it has a good story line that makes it a little more civilized than the usual mountain man stories.

    Full Circle Life has a way of coming full circle. In the case of the Barnes clan, that is always a good thing. Great story of life and death in the old Wes.

    Grosz is a writer of action-packed lore with good characters, good plots, good subplots and has done his due diligence in researching the anthropological as well as the geographical aspects of the his subject matter. A damned fine read!
