After years roaming the dangerous Rockies, Barnaby Skye still has his hair! The wary Mountain Man faces yet another challenge. His salty-tongued Crow wife Victoria, unable to provide a son, urges him to take a second spouse.
As soon as he wins over the beautiful Shoshone Blue Dawn, a reckless British journalist appears seeking the Big Medicine of a hidden canyon’s bone vault. Promised a hefty salary, Skye and his wives guide the reporter to this charnel house of prehistoric monsters. But when they arrive, so does a band of death-dealing tribesmen. Per usual, Wheeler takes his readers along a narrative trail that’s a downright treat to follow and hard to put aside. —William Garwood
