Western fiction at its finest. The history of the American West as seen through the eyes of a boy who runs away from home at the age of twelve, loves his first woman and kills his first man at the age of thirteen, and goes on to co-found a ranching dynasty that impacts lives from southern Texas to northern Montana. To drovers on the Chisholm Trail, he is Tam the tall tale teller, a windy cowboy with an unending supply of unbelievable yarns. To the Indians, he is Crazy Rifle, the great white Blackfoot warrior from where the glaciers are at home and the Blackfeet roam. To women, he is irresistible; to readers, unforgettable.
