Legend of the Wyakin

by David G. Rasmussen

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

A young Spanish boy is orphaned and left alone to fend for himself in the savage wilderness of 1865 Montana. Encounters with injustice, intolerance, cholera, a cold-blooded killer, an enormous grizzly, and a young Nez Perce warrior pose daunting challenges for the intrepid Cortez Modrables, the wonderful character at the center of David R. Rasmussen's masterful Legend of the Wyakin.


It's 1865 in the Montana wilderness. Cholera ravages a riverboat bound for Fort Benton and the goldfields beyond, forcing the boat and its disgruntled passengers ashore in the rugged Missouri River Breaks region. Tragedy ensues, leaving a young Jewish immigrant, Cortez Modrables, alone, truly a stranger in a strange land. Will his encounter with an ancient silver-tip grizzly prove Cortez’s undoing? Will his budding friendship with a lone Nez Perce lad prove a boon – or a curse? Legend of the Wyakin, the first volume in a sweeping three-book saga by master Western storyteller David Rasmussen, is a classic tale of adventure that readers young and old are sure to enjoy.
