Sam Huff Mrs. I loved this book, a descriptive page story of how a young man became a mountain man, a hunter, and an indian in his lifetime. This young man braved savage natives, colossal bears, and the most extreme of conditions.

With nowhere else to go, Dan pursues a new future in the distant and bounteous land, later named Utah Valley by the mormons who would eventually settle there. As he travels his way towards the Rocky Mountains, he learns many things from many teachers, from mountain men to indian chiefs.
But still a conflict remains, and he will have to make a choice that could completely and permanently change his life. The whole story is based on a true story and I really liked it. An interesting book, was really fun to read and I highly recommend this to anyone who likes anything Western. Jan 26, Andrea rated it it was ok. My husband loved these books when he was growing up.
We go to church with the author's son, so I got him a couple of Lee Nelson autographed books for Christmas, and decided I should see what was so great about them. Well, the editing is certainly NOT great. The book is riddled with typos. It seriously makes me wonder if anyone bothered to proof it at all.
Or, why after all these years when additional copies have been printed that corrections haven't been made. The story was alright. This kid named My husband loved these books when he was growing up. This kid named Dan Storm was converted to the Mormon church in Canada with his family. His parents die, and he moves to Missouri to live with some relatives. Persecution is crazy, and after causing trouble with some high ups, he flees to the Rocky Mountains. This part of the book had me thinking my husband was so funny, because he pretty much loathes LDS fiction.
When I called him on it, he told me that after that point it doesn't talk about religion much at all. This was true. Dan's adventures with trappers, prospectors, and indians were interesting. Most of the writing was ok other than the typos , but there is a part near the end that was driving me nuts because it was so unclear. It was only over the space of four or five paragraphs, but after the first one or two I kept rereading to see what I must have missed. The answer came out a few paragraphs later.

This was the first story they have ever heard with the exception perhaps of Ender's Game that had some very disturbing content.
The story doesn't end like happy like most sto I read this book many times as a child and young adult and loved it. The story doesn't end like happy like most stories they are used to usually do. The story gave us the chance to discuss topics like racism and violence with each other. As we read through the book we would occasionally stop and watch a youtube movie about things the book discussed like how beaver dams are made, how to make a fire with a bow drill, edible plants, what steamboats look like, and what small pox are.
Children, young adults and adults will enjoy the story, though the target audience is defenitely younger adults probably age I must admit that the 5 star rating is how I saw the book as a young adult. If I had to give it a rating as an objective adult I would have to give it four stars. View 1 comment. Every chapter of this book was exciting and captivating.

This time I didn't. After reading about half the book, one night I decided to read the prologue. I was completely thrilled with it. I learned that I was not reading a completely invented story as I thought I was. The prologue contains the most interesting and fun genealogy account I've ever read.
My wife and I started reading the second book in this 9 book series right away. We're already half finished with it and it is just as exciting of a story as the first book. Our minds are dreaming at night wondering what is about to come in the next chapters. Sep 16, Stacy rated it liked it.
