by Willard Wyman
Library Journal Wyman's first novel tells the tale of Ty Hardin, a quiet young man who becomes a kind of legend in the Montana mountains. Readers are treated to the significant parts of Ty's life-how he learns to be a packer who can guide mule trains into any wilderness, his outdoor adventures, the people he knows and loves, how he flourishes, and how he dies. Having been a wrangler, guide, and packer, Wyman knows the West, the mountains and the high country, and their inhabitants so that readers come to know them, too. Solid, powerful, realistic writing makes for an exciting debut. Highly recommended for regional collections about the West and larger fiction collections.-Ken St. Andre, Phoenix P.L.
