Summary

They called him . . . Preacher. 

He came west to the Rockies as a young runaway and grew into a legend among the already legendary frontier mountain men. They called him Preacher - a name that would become a monument to all who sought adventure in the savage wilderness of America's untamed west. The only man with the skills to lead a wagon train on the last leg of the rugged Oregon trail, Preacher knows they're headed into trouble. It's hard enough for a hundred greenhorns to survive the wilds of the northwest; being pursued by thieving renegade outlaws and Indians with a thirst for gold - and blood - makes it damn near impossible. Somehow, Preacher has to get these pilgrims through safely - if he doesn't want to end up buried along the trail with the rest of them . . . .

narrator's voice was perfect for this story.

Love the Mountain Man series, and to hear it with this gentleman's voice was just a bonus.

Not Johnstone's best work, horrible narration.

I'm a big William W. Johnstone fan but I was disappointed with this one. J. Rodney Turner needs to find a different line of work because he is not a good narrator. I had a hard time understanding much of what he said and all the characters sounded the same. I lasted until chapter ten and gave up. I should have listened to the preview first.

EXCELLANT

Great to get involved in a good old fashion pioneer/ mountain man adventure. while those times are past, it always good to refresh our fantasy of and how entertaining a good fiction can be.
