An historical novel of fur trading in the American west. This is part of the publisher's series, The Frontier Library. ''Here are two of the most improbable mountain men ever to trap beaver in the virgin Rockies. Ronald Smythe (rhymes with scythe), better known as Shakespeare, is a former actor of gargantuan proportion. His sidekick, Tal Jones, better known as Silk, is a rail-thin teenager with the brains that got left out of Shakespeare's head. Between them they get into flabbergasting scrapes. While Silk and Shakespeare are fictional, real historical characters crop up in this light-hearted fur-trade romp.'' In addition to many works of fiction about the west (two Spur Awards), Win Blevins is also the author of The Dictionary of the American West, and the recipient of the Owen Wister Award for Lifetime Achievement.
