During the course of those lessons, Crockett and Rachael begin an intimate relationship. When Rachael is found dead from an apparent suicide, Crockett is devastated and tries to slink back into his self-imposed seclusion. But things get complicated when Crockett is contacted by Rachael’s aunt, who believes the suicide was staged and claims she has the name of the murderer. Together, Crockett and Ruby begin an investigation that leads them into a world of treachery, deceit, and death.

the TRAIL series


 I listen to audio books every day and really love a good western.  The TRAIL series is by far the best.  Not only because of the great characters and suspenseful plots but the author doesn't such an amazing job of bringing them to life with his voice.  I usually stay away from books read by the author, but Mr. Lewis is outstanding!  Can't wait for the next TRAIL book to hit Audible.

An Amazon Review...

5 Stars


I particularly enjoy listening to the audible versions

By Denniss100

If you have not had the pleasure of partaking of this series you are missing out on a true American classic. I particularly enjoy listening to the audible versions, which are narrated by the author himself. As another reviewer has mentioned, the characters are as fully developed as any in modern American fiction. There is indeed violence in these tales, but it is offset by the utter humanity of the characters. Cannot recommend highly enough!

The year was 1803. It was a time when the West was not only frontier; it was the undiscovered country. It was the time of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark before the trains of Prairie Schooners and settlers, before cowboys or cattle drives, before Colonel Colt’s six-shooter, and nearly three-quarters of a century before George Armstrong Custer and his men were killed at Little Big Horn. It was a time when the western fur trade was new, and only the first of the mountain men had left the Mississippi behind on their journey into the wilderness. It was there that Nathaniel Horne was alone and dying from the lack of food and the snows of winter. It was there a savage native people, in spite of the fact that he was not a true Human Being, gave him shelter. From that kindness came Snow-Walker, and Nathaniel Horne began a new life with his Incidents Among the Savages.
