The Wandering Hill Mass market paperbound - 2003

by Larry McMurtry

Summary

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Larry McMurtry continues his epic four-novel telling of The Berrybender Narratives with a new adventure that is both a grand literary achievement and riveting entertainment as forged by a master wordsmith....
The indefatigable Tasmin Berrybender and her eccentric family trek on through the unexplored Wild West of 1830s America -- and suffer the harsh realities of the untamed wilderness, including sickness, brutal violence and death, the desertion of trusted servants, and the increasing hardships of daily life in a land where survival is never certain. Filled with larger-than-life legendary figures such as mountain men Jim Bridger and Kit Carson, vividly rendered action, irresistible good humor, and an ever-changing cast of characters that readers will treasure, The Wandering Hill proves again that Larry McMurtry still reigns as the first statesman of the Old West.

First line

THE old mountain man-tall, gaunt, furious, snow in his hair and beard, and murder in his eyes-burst into the big room of Pierre Boisdeffre's trading post just as the English party was sitting down to table-the table being only a long trestle of rough planks near the big fireplace, where a great haunch of elk dripped on its spit.
