Synopsis: The saga of frontier mountain man Titus Bass was first chronicled by author Terry C. Johnston in the bestselling trilogy Carry the Wind, Borderlords, and One-Eyed Dream. In Dance on the Wind, Buffalo Palace, and Crack in the Sky, Johnston set down the stirring adventures of Bass's early life. Now the unforgettable epic concludes with the story of this legendary hero's autumn years that was begun in Ride the Moon Down and Death Rattle.
In this breathtaking climax, Bass, the hardy survivor of a world now gone, prepares to fight his magnificent final battle.
Fleeing the bloody aftermath of the Taos Rebellion, Titus Bass leads his family north, hoping to winter with the Crow people. But wagons filled with overland emigrants in search of new homes have already begun to trek across the vast untamed frontier. The wild and free world of the mountain men is quickly fading into the past. Even the famous Jim Bridger, whose trading post sits on the emigrants' Oregon Trail, must contend with arriving Mormons under Brigham Young, who view the region as their Promised Land to be cleansed of all nonbelievers.
For Titus Bass, the journey north is sadly eventful. He must save an old friend from death and rescue his daughter Magpie from cutthroat traders. He must find a way to free a wagon train of innocents from its unscrupulous leader, his murderous assistant, and the band of violent toughs who enforce the leader's will. Most important of all, Bass must come to terms with his long-lost daughter Amanda, bound with her husband and children for a new home ... in a faraway land that Bass himself will never see.
When Bass eventually arrives in the land of the Crow, he finds old friends -- and old ways -- dying out. Determined to live out his final years in peace, Bass soon comes to realize that even on the changing frontier, enemies lie in wait, old dangers lurk, and survival is never a certain thing. But still to come is the greatest lesson of all -- that dearer by far than his own life are the lives of his friends and loved ones.
From the Back Cover:
Praise for the novels of Terry C. Johnston:
Ride the Moon Down
"Bass is a near-mythic Davy Crockett-like character, but author Johnston imbues him with Everyman emotions .... Readers of past Bass adventures will not be disappointed."
Dance on the Wind
"A good book ... not only gives readers a wonderful story, but also provides vivid slices of history that surround the colorful characters."
-- Dee Brown, author of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee
"Packed with people, action, and emotion ... makes you wish it would never end."

-- Publishers Weekly
"Terry C. Johnston has redefined the concept of the western hero.... The author's attention to detail and authenticity, coupled with his ability to spin a darned good yarn, makes it easy to see why Johnston is today's bestselling frontier novelist. He's one of a handful that truly know the territory."
-- Chicago Tribune
Crack in the Sky
"No one does it better than Terry Johnston. He has emerged as one of the great frontier historical novelists of our generation."
