The unforgiving wilderness of the Rocky Mountains forced a boy to grow up fast, so Nate King taught his son, Zach, how to survive the constant hazards and hardships—and he taught him well. With an Indian war party on the prowl and a marauding grizzly on the loose, young Zach was about to face the test of his life, with no room for failure. But there was one danger Nate hadn't prepared Zach for—a beautiful girl with blue eyes.


The brutal wilderness of the Rocky Mountains can be deadly to those unaccustomed to its dangers. So when the Coyfield clan from the hill country back East arrive at Nate King's part of the mountain, Nate is more than willing to lend a hand and show them some hospitality. He has no way of knowing that this clan is used to fighting—and killing—for what they want. And they want Nate's land for their own!

When mountain man Nathaniel King promises a dying Ute warrior that he would find the man's son, he has no idea that he will soon confront an enemy unlike any he has ever faced. For his trail will lead him and his family straight into the clutches of a mysterious, hidden tribe--a tribe that no white man has ever seen and lived to describe.


When Nate King came upon a pair of green would-be trappers from New York, he was only too glad to risk his life to save them into his own cabin that he realized they would repay his kindness...with betrayal. When the backshooters revealed their true colors, Nate knew he was in for a brutal battle -- with the lives of his family hanging in the balance.

When mountain man Nathaniel King and his family were threatened by a band of slavers, they faced enemies like none they'd ever battled.


Strong mountain men like Nate King risked everything to carve a new world from the frontier, and they weren't about to give it up without a fight. But when some friendly Crows asked Nate to help them rescue a missing girl from a band of murderous Lakota, he set off on a journey that would take him to the end of the trail--and possibly the end of his life.

Back in the days when a man's worth was judged by his courage, the rugged pioneers in the Rocky Mountains were among the bravest. Settlers like Nathaniel King fought from day to day, never knowing when warring Indians or cutthroat renegades would attack. One new enemy could cause them untold pain; one small mistake could bring them excruciating death. And when Nate faced a foe bullets would not kill, his rifle couldn't save him. If his cunning failed, King would end up as nothing more than another notch in his seemingly invincible adversary's belt.


Before the yoke of civilization had tamed the land, a man had to fight for his life in the Rocky Mountains. If hostile Indians weren't hunting for his scalp, ferocious grizzlies or man-eating mountain lions were after his flesh. And if the summer heat wasn't boiling his blood, the winter cold was freezing it. So Nathaniel King and other settlers were forever on the lookout for possible dangers, and they were always ready to match death with death. But when a marauding band of killers and thieves kidnapped his wife and children, Nate had finally run into enemies who pushed his skill and cunning to the limit. And it would only take one wrong move for him to lose his family—and his only reason for living.

Savage and dangerous, the unexplored Rockies hid threats that could kill even the most experienced mountain men. And any greenhorn unlucky enough to get stranded in a wilderness blizzard faced a brutal death. Settlers like Nathaniel King had the survival skills needed to live through the fierce winter storms, and they willingly helped any stranded traveler. But when Nate took in a pair of strangers who had lost their way in the snow, their kindness was repaid with vile treachery. If King wasn't careful, he and his young family would not live to see another spring.


Under constant threat of Indian attack, a handful of white trappers and traders lived short, violent lives, painfully aware that their next breath could be their last. With only raw courage to aid them, Nathaniel King and other pioneers braved the savage Rockies to claim the freedom they found there. But when a deadly dispute among rival tribes blew up into a bloody war, Nate had to make peace between the enemies–or he and his young family would be the first to lose their scalps.

Before there were laws, taxes and the pollution of so-called civilization, a free man could go to breathe the pure air of liberty in the vast, untamed Rockies. There, Nathaniel King and other rugged mountain men were always willing to lend struggling settlers a helping hand. But when Nate freed Solomon Cain from an Indian death trap, the apparently innocent man repaid his kindness by leaving him stranded in the wilds. Only with the help of a Ute brave who sought vengeance against Cain could Nate set right the mistake he had made. Cain deserved more than death. He deserved wilderness justice!

Rugged and independent, the mountain men who lived in the savage Rockies needed great courage just to survive. Not a day passed without wild animals, deadly cutthroats or hostile elements threatening to destroy them. To protect their homes and families, Nathaniel King and other settlers taught their sons the skills that would help them battle their enemies. But young Zach King was still a tenderfoot when vicious Indians captured his father. If Zach hadn't learned his lessons well enough to save him, then Nate's only hope would be a quick death.
