The native American Indians, the first pioneers, the family settlers--all who braved the emerging American West drew their very lived and fortunes from the great rivers. From the earliest days of the untamed frontier to the dawn of the twentieth century, here, in all their violence and beauty, are the Rivers West. When the rest of the west was already won . . . the mountains remained unspoiled and deadly. The men and women who tamed the savage land were tough, lawless, and, when necessary, as mean as the traps they carried--living by a private code of proud honor and swift justice. Burly, broad-shouldered Isaac Beard is the living embodiment of that mountain code. To survive, he will have to fight his way to a safe haven near Spirit Lake in the Colorado upcountry, forge an alliance with the untamed Ute Indians, and make a place where generations of Beards--and rugged, untethered, unbroken people like them--can live in peace at the headwaters of the Colorado Grand.
